Test your understanding of how camera shots are used to tell a story in films. For instance, you have been enrolled at the Spellberg School of Film, where you are assessed on your camera work skills. First, immerse yourself in basic film terms, then do a quiz on them. Next, choose five shots for a horror film. You select which shots would work best, and give reasons for your choices. View your film. You can go back and re-shoot the shots you're not happy with. Once you've completed your film you can view and print out an assessment report.

Students explore how film-makers use a range of camera techniques to construct meaning and influence audience response.
Students identify and apply film metalanguage.
Students choose combinations of camera shots to enhance the telling of a story.
