Die Dramaturgien der schrägen Kamera: Thesen und Perspektiven


I want to count all forms of pictures to the oblique angle (also Dutch angle, Chinese angle, canted camera or tilted shot) in which the horizon of the picture does not agree with the horizon of the audience. It is the form of tilting around the axis of the picture. Therefore there can be distinguished between the core and the marginal area. Within the core I distinguish - the tilting (oblique position on the axis of the camera) - variation of camera (back and forth movement on the axis) - rolling on the axis (continuing rotation in one direction)
