Creative Camera Movement: Pan

What Is a Pan?


The way a film or video camera moves in a scene is as much a part of storytelling as the script or actors. In this part of our Creative Camera Movement series, you'll learn about the pan. A pan is a horizontal move: the camera stays in one place, and swivels from left to right or vice versa. In this course, you'll learn why the pan is used, and how to do it well!
