Camera Shots Project // “Pilot” -The Flash

Shot: Establishing shot

-This shot of the farm where Barry and Weather Wizard fought, tells the audience about the destruction the tornado caused. The farm is covered by police cars and debris.

This shot makes us pay attention to the complete tear in the house where the tornado blew right through.

Shot: Over the Shoulder Shot

-As the farm is zoomed in on, Joe turns around to reveal that the camera was shot over Joe’s shoulder. If this shot was taken from a different angle the perspective on how Joe sees the destruction of the farm. This shot focuses on how Joe thinks about the damage Clyde caused.

Shot: Duo/Two-Shot

-This shot mainly focuses on Joe and Barry’s conversation about what happened to him, how he got his powers, and the safety of his secret. If this angle what shot differently, we wouldn’t be able to see the serious looks on their faces as they talk about what went down. This shot focuses on their faces.

Shot: Over the Shoulder Shot

-Joe tells Barry not to tell Iris about him being the Flash. The camera is over Barry’s shoulder as you see camera focus on the stern and frightened look on Joe’s face. If this shot was different, it would be a two-shot where you could see both their faces.

Shot: High Angle Shot

-This shot of the visiting room of Iron Heights shows Barry and his father about to start talking. This shot focuses on the two being the only ones talking since all other seats are empty.

-This shot is of Barry and his father (Henry) reaching for the phone and starting to talk. This shot focuses on how Barry going to his father after a tough day and how they only get to see each other in prison.

If this shot was different it would be a duo/two-shot that would show both father and son talking, with the camera being placed between them.

Shot: Medium Close up

-The shot begins with Eddie kissing Iris as she works around CCJitters. Then she pauses to watch the TV. This focuses on her facial expression change from happy to intrigued as the news shows the tornado trashed farm. If this shot was different, it would be a POV shot of the TV looking at Iris, like using personification.

Shot: Over the Shoulder Shot

Shot: Over the Shoulder Shot

-This scene shows Barry and his father back at the prison talking back and forth. This focuses on them saying their “I love you”‘s and their faces. Barry then puts his hand on the glass screen that splits them apart and so does Henry. If angle of this shot were different it would be a Two-Shot.

Shot: Close Up – Noddy Shot

-This shot shows Henry crying. Then the camera switches to Barry’s close up of him crying too while he nods. This focuses on their faces and crying. If this were different it would be a Two-shot.

Shot: High Angle Shot / Wide Shot / Establishing Shot

-Back in the city streets, Barry whooshes around with his lightning. This shot focuses on how fast Barry is going compared to the cars on the Central City streets. If this were different, it would be a POV shot through Barry’s eyes of him running around.

-For a few seconds, there is a POV shot through Barry’s eyes as he runs past everything. This focuses on the cars and objects in his path as he just runs past them without care. If this were different, it would be a High Angle Shot of him running around.
