Here are four reasons why a film director moves the camera:

1. move for emphasis (the camera moves into an actor)

2. move to emphasize a subject in a group (pan or dolly)

3. transfer attention from one subject to another (pan or focus)

4. to connect movement from one space to another (pan from the door to a desk or go from room to room)
