Though special effects somewhat gives the sensation but unless and until a good direction and camera are co-operating, everything turns to be a flaw. One simple instance can justify this statement and that is character movement. If a character walks away in a room, camera must be moved or positioned to frame his movements adequately. If it's a scene where one wants to show the whole image of a ship or a building then aerial shot is preferred where track won't serve the purpose. Aerial shots are done with crane or helicopter. A minute mistake during camera can lead into wrong understandings. If there is a shot where person is getting surprised and it is taken as either long or mid shot then the actual feeling of astonishment may not be clear in frames. Camera usages stand a very important tool in one movie making. Braveheart (1995) is a movie which shows an excellent art of direction and camera that gave it to the honor of five Academy Awards in the 68th Academy Awards ceremony, including the Academy Award for Best Picture and Best Director. It's the camera and only the camera which can take one movie either to Oscar platform or out of its market. Camera operators need good eyesight, artistic ability, and hand-eye coordination. They should be patient, accurate, and detail oriented. Camera operators also should have the ability to hold a camera by hand for extended periods. Braveheart is the partly historical, partly mythological, story of William Wallace, a Scottish common man who fights for his country's freedom from English rule around the end of the 13th century.
Braveheart: An Example of Creativity
For one film, the starting and ending shots are two important aspects. As "first impression is the last impression", first scene of movie is very important to generate interest into viewers' minds. It tells about the movie basic, means its category whereas ending scene should summarize the whole story into a single scene. If it starts with murder or attempting to murder scene that means movie is more likely of thriller type. Braveheart starts with the natural views: high hills and dense forests; camera was done from helicopter and using crane. If it was not done so then it would be impossible for someone to get the feeling in depth. This is giving a message that it's a movie related to the lifestyle of people during ancient times and warlike nature. Story begins with a little boy William, who grows up and later becomes the central character of the story. In his childhood he lost his father and only brother. The art behind the camera can be explained by few examples. In one situation William was alone and no one was there with him except one little girl. In the shot it was shown by placing the boy alone and crying, before him his father was being buried by someone else and other villagers were leaving the place except one little girl, with her face turning towards William. All these emotions were captured into a single time shot. A good director is one who can express most of the ideas in least amount of time without losing its interest upon the audiences. Instead of doing in a single one if multiple slots were taken, frame might have lost its natural rhythm. After that, boy got a company from his
