Follow shot

Follow shot is a specific camera shot in which the subject being filmed is seemingly pursued by the camera. The follow shot can be achieved through tracking devices, panning, the use of a crane, and zoom lenses resulting in different qualitative images but, nevertheless, recording a subject (performer) in motion.

Examples

  • Elephant: Each character is followed continuously during their narrative time.
  • : Each character is followed several times, in a style similar to that of the previously-mentioned Elephant.
  • The Shining: The camera follows Danny as he rides his tricycle through the long hallways of the hotel.
