Why oh why : the ground angle shot


Recommended Posts

Dear Abbey,

 

A football game should be a pretty straight forward exercise for camera men. The whole event really only requires 3 or 4 different shots and none of them are ground angle.

 

So, can anyone tell me why they insist on showing ground angle shots which are virtually meaningless on a television? Did someone see this done in their favorite movie and fall in love? Do we have Fellini's grandson directing the action? What gives?

 

Signed,

1) Sideline

2) Endzone on FG's.

3) Blimp?
