Help with some technical questions please :)
Hello! My name is Marwah Ghazi, and for my final year project in university I decided to make a short film. However before producing the short film i must conduct a research on the background of the film.
My research topic is “Showcasing how film is used as a medium/language to stand against prejudice and to promote tolerance"
My basic film idea is about a “dark room”. The idea is, we are the product of our own thoughts and if we keep being hateful and negative, we will end up in a “dark room”. I have yet to construct the storyline.
1- What are the powerful camera angles? Do you think using plenty of close-ups tells us more about the character’s personality than other angles?
2- In terms of cinematography, how to utilize the “low light” shots to emphasize the characters’ facial expressions and their surrounding environment.
3- What kind of camera/ lens do you prefer using when shooting in a low light environment?
4- What sort of color/ feel should a short film about an issue of “hate” have?
5- What symbolizes “hope” to you?
Thank you so much!
if you have any questions you can contact me at
Have an awesome day! :D
