INTRODUCTION TO FILMING UNCONTROLLED ACTION
These two lessons on filming uncontrolled action are designed to teach you the methods of
filming uncontrolled action within your unit. The techniques are based on motion picture
cameras. However, these lessons are equally adaptable to television camera usage. The
television cameraperson can and should use these same techniques. Army Visual
Information units are becoming more tactically oriented and will require efficient motion
picture filming. Most of this motion picture filming will be performed in the field.
Your ability to support the Army with usable motion picture or television documentation
may well spell the difference between mission failure and mission accomplishment.
The term "visual information" has replaced "audiovisual" in the Army of Excellence.
