Goal: Practice moving the camera vertically to achieve various effects.
Objective 1: Standard tilt up. Set up the camera on a tripod. Start with a static shot of an actor in one position; have the actor find a reason to look straight up, then tilt the camera up to where the actor is looking. Do not zoom in or out. (5-10 seconds)
Objective 2: Standard tilt down. Start with a shot of something high up, then tilt the camera down to settle on something else that logically connects to the thing up high. (5-10 seconds)
Objective 3: Tilt to show POV look of actor. This has two shots to it. The first shot is of an actor looking intently at some object/person. The second shot is from the actor's POV, showing the object/person and starting down low and titling up the object/person. (10-20 seconds)
Objective 4: Titling while zooming. Start with a static tripod shot, zoomed in on something up high in the distance. Slowly zoom out as you tilt down to encompass the larger scene/landscape, keeping the original subject in the frame. (10-15 seconds)
Extra Credit: Make them all interesting: add a mini-story...add dialogue...add other elements (but do not change the requirements), etc.
