We are just winding down the contract down at the Carib Reserve and then to come to finish the work.”The Minister is also commending the support that the Government is receiving from village councils around the island, in undertaking road projects in both urban and rural communities.He announced that several village councils including Calibishie will soon be spearheading road development projects, after Government approved funds which will soon be accessible to the respective village councils. Share Share Diversion of Morne Prosper Road to facilitate Road Rehabilitation Project“We just approved from the ministry $150, 000.00 to go towards the Wallhouse Road Improvement and that money is to be made available to the village council. We just approved $150, 000.00 also for a road in the Woodfordhill/Wesley area and that we are hoping to work with the village councils. We have been empowering the village councils to get involved in cutlassing and cleaning of the drains and making the monies available to some of the councils we feel that have demonstrated over a period of time the ability to manage and to stretch the money. We have also done that with the village council in the Laplaine Constituency to empower them and to make money available to build roads,” Mr Blackmoore said.On commencement of the Morne Prosper road project, which started in November 2010, Morne Prosper residents are now using a private back road made accessible by the Alexander’s which intersects further up Copthall, since the main road is blocked.Dominica Vibes News Sharing is caring!

The 5 Most Powerful Camera Movements in Cinema History

first_imgThe TiltA camera tilt is similar to a pan, but instead of turning left or right, it moves up or down. The physical camera stays in the same stationary place, but the field of view, like the pan, changes. Here’s a YouTube example of a proper tilt by Frank Healz. The Tracking ShotImage via Wikipedia.A tracking shot — or dolly shot — involves moving a camera forward, backward, left, or right (or any combination thereof) in real space. Often, this requires a dolly track to keep the camera steady. Usually, this movement covers short, controlled distances; however, in cinema, it’s often combined with pans, tilts, pedestals, and zooms — as you can see in the example below.These are just the basic camera movements, if you’re interested in learning more about some more advanced moves and general filmmaking knowledge, check out some of these resources.6 Affordable Ways to Capture Great Dolly ShotsTraditional Camera Moves Made Easy With DJI DronesAchieving a Jib Shot with a Slide The ZoomImage via PetaPixel.A zoom is a camera move that does not require any camera “movement” at all — so to speak. A zoom involves a camera increasing or decreasing its focal length to magnify an image. Not all camera lenses are capable of this, but here’s a breakdown of how a zoom lens works. For our purposes, zooming in or out can change the composition, scene, or even the story. Which is your favorite camera movement? Let us know in the comments.center_img The CraneImage via Hague Camera Supports.Also called a pedestal or jib shot, this technique requires moving the actual camera body up or down in space. The term jib comes from the arm used in a camera craning device. For longer crane movements, you need longer and longer jibs (as you can see in the photo above). Here’s an example of a famous crane shot. These camera movements revolutionized the art of filmmaking.Cover image via Vintage Everyday.While it may be something most filmmakers take for granted, the concept of camera movement is really the apex of centuries of image-capturing technology. Movement, whether it is from a stationary location or freely across three-dimensional space, is a powerful cinematic technique. So, as a filmmaker or video producer, it’s important for you to understand what movement is and how it works.Let’s explore the five most powerful camera movements in cinema history.The PanLet’s start with the basics. One of the first camera moves to appear in cinema was perhaps the simplest. If your camera is on a tripod, moving the camera head to the left or to the right is called a “pan.” You can see an example of it in the 1903 film The Great Train Robbery below.last_img read more
