        Building Video Literacy: Types of Shots

        What does it mean to be video literate? It means understanding that a video documentary is not a record of real life but a deliberately composed presentation of the author's point of view on the subject. Each part of the video is the result of specific choices made by the filmmaker. This document, developed by EDC's Center for Children and Technology, illustrates the different types of shots filmmakers use and explains the purposes of each.
