Camera Shot: High Angle
Notice how the angle
against the brick wall
makes 007 look like he’s
in a tight spot.
A cameraman

shot.
The high angle here makes
Matilda look smaller and
weaker than her character
actually is.
The high angle shot angles the camera
down at the subject, making them
appear less powerful, insignificant, or in
some cases, trapped.

Look at the difference!
The brick wall looks much more restrictive from the high angle in
Bond’s case, but the straight-on angle with the man in the second
picture makes the situation look much less futile.
