Using camera height to show the status between characters.

by Peter D. Marshall

In real life, there are two kinds of status relationships:

1. equal to equal (good cop and bad guy/doctor and doctor)
The camera is placed at the same height for both characters.

2. superior to inferior (judge and defendant/teacher and student)
The camera is placed at different heights for each character. (Low angle for the superior subject and high angle for the inferior subject)
