Ever since I have been in T.V. Production, I find myself picking apart movies all the time. Now when I go to the movie theater, or am just sitting at home, I realize all the different camera angles; I notice the lighting, music, and cuts to new scenes. Now I can’t watch movies without critiquing camera angles constantly, like, “that scene could have been so much more powerful with an over-the-shoulder shot or even a low angle shot!” I have earned a new respect for the whole process of filmmaking, and it still amazes me how so many people will work months on a movie to just entertain us for two hours. I can no longer just sit and watch a movie anymore, without analyzing every cut, angle change, and musical selection. T.V. Production has made it so that I’m interested in how directors manipulate cameras, and actors to provoke the audience’s emotions just how they planned.
