Finally, the power to create awesome videos is in your hands as Nokia, the world’s number 1 mobile brand, introduces the best entertainment smartphone that allows you to take high-definition videos, and then add music, images, text and transitions – all from the Nokia N8 screen. 

The Nokia N8 has a versatile 12MP camera with Carl Zeiss optics and Xenon flash which lets you shoot different angles and shots in HD-quality. What’s more, you don’t have to be a pro to enjoy the efficiency of this amazing device.

As a beginner, you can explore eight classical ways of framing video scenes with the Nokia N8.

  1. Establishing shot - A shot used from far away to give the viewer an impression of the context of where you are. You can film the people in the scene from a great distance or the outside of a building to set the scene for what happens next.
  2. Long shot - With a long shot, you’re close enough that you can see what the actors are doing, but they’re too far away for you to be able to see all the details.  Long shots are often used in combination with motion towards or away from the camera, to give a feeling of travel.   
  3. Full shot – A full shot is when you frame your actors in a way where you can see them from top to toe – but not much more. These are great for sequences where the context of the person is important, such as when someone is doing sports, getting into a car or similar.
  4. Medium shot – This is a shot where you get quite close to the actors without feeling as if you are encroaching on their personal space.  This is a shot that is comparable to the field of vision we have when in normal conversation – not too close, not too far away.
  5. Close-up – Capture your actor’s emotion – tears welling out of someone’s eyes, a mysterious smile or even a completely blank stare into the distance – to make your on-screen character come to life. A close-up shot is great to create this impact especially if you have a good subject.
  6. Two shot - Create a dialogue scene between your two characters using a two-shot. This is a great shot to use in establishing the relationship between the two characters. By seeing both people on screen at the same time, the viewers can use the actors’ body language to gain a deeper understanding of what is happening between them.
  7. Over-the-shoulder shot - Improve the dialogue scene by adding a series of over-the shoulder shots. Film the person who is speaking, or the person who is reacting to what is being said. Or do the same thing with a medium shot, but this time angling in a way the part of the person who is being spoken to in the frame. This keeps the feeling of voyeurism alive, as if the viewers are casual observers.
  8. Reverse angle shot -Perfect the conversation scene by using the reverse angle shot. This shot shows the action from the opposite perspective of the previous shot, giving the effect of the two actors looking at each other. This shot is also great to purposely evoke the emotion of confusion or discomfort in your audience.
Each of these eight shots has its own advantages and challenges, but you will soon get a feel for what works best for the mood you are trying to create. Best of all, with a solid wide-angle lens of Nokia N8, you can experiment with all of them to really develop your cinematic storytelling!
