God’s Eye View

By Paul, April 3, 2012

This is a montage of straight-down shots used in various films.

This type of shot is commonly referred to as a “God’s Eye View” angle. The camera lens is perpendicular to the subject without any POV reference, which gives the viewer an omniscient viewpoint of the character and the surrounding space.

The video is cut to the Yeah Yeah Yeah’s “Down Boy” from the “Is Is” album.

What do you think?
