The theatrical term entrance is the appearance of a character on screen or stage. The term "making an entrance" is used to most commonly to such entrances that are particularly prominent and attention-grabbing.
Some theatrical entrances mark the first appearance of a character, while others show them entering a scene for the first time.
The makeover generally sees an audience (often a love interest) watching the person enter the room. A popular example is when a beautiful girl walking down the stairs, with the camera panning up from her shoes (as with the "feet first" shot). This happens in 1999's She's All That where the character of Laney (played by Rachael Leigh Cook) is transformed from a geeky-looking girl and walks down the stairs after a makeover. The impact of the entrance is somewhat lessened (or in other ways strengthen) by her falling down over the last few steps.
Some characters hide in the shadows until it is time to reveal themselves, often timed for effect with a dramatic piece of dialogue.
