Textual Analysis

Low: Camera looking up at subject, making it look bigger.
Eye-level: Camera is pointed directly at subject.
High: Camera is looking down on subject, making it look smaller.
Worm's eye: Extreme low angle, camera is very low, looking up.
Canted: Camera is tilted to make subject look slanted.
Bird's eye: Extreme high angle, looking straight down.
Textual Analysis is the process of breaking down a text into its various elements and studying them to analyse how meaning is created, when analysing moving image medai( such as film or television) we must examine the following areas: Camera ( shots, angles, movements)
Editing ( how shots have been put together)
Sound ( both digetic and non-digetic)
Special effects ( if there are any)
Mise-en-scene ( costume, make-up, facial-expression, props, setting, performance)
