Controlled action cinematography is simply using the skills and techniques acquired
through school or on-the-job training, and applying them in a situation where you
control the entire aspect of the production: music, sound effects, special effects,
dialogue, action, and targeted length of the project.
You probably will not be
filming a major production, but you will still need careful planning and
preparation to make your production effective and informative.
productions do not have to be dry, dull and boring.
It is your job as the
cameraman/director to make sure that the images on the screen, whether 16mm, 35mm
or videotape, are clear, well composed and framed, and shot from a variety of
angles to add interest and help the flow of continuity.
And you may do as many
retakes of a scene as needed to get it right.
