Apr 14th 7PM ET / 4PM PT Considering Art : Considering Point of View
Narratively, what does a POV shot provide that a more standard third-person’ shot does not?
The subjectivity of the camera invites us not just into the events that unfold within a film, but experiencing those events through the gaze of a character or entity within the film - or even asking us, as viewers, to become a ‘character’ within the world of the film.
Together we ask: How does a POV change our relationship to the events within a film? To our relationship with the characters? In this tour we will view examples from recent and historical films that have broadened the use and meaning of point-of-view shots within the cinematic experience.
