Zankyou no Terror Episode 1

The dynamic scenes in this premiere made great use of low level framing to add intensity to the action. The low level of framing puts all the mad scramble right on top of the audience. This makes the movements seem dominating and more hectic which are effective ways to create intense moments.

The clip below is part of Mishima’s escape scene. Again, you'll notice the low framing, this increases the sense of speed as the motorcycle passes by. The camera also tilts sideways for a canted framing which have a disorienting effect that adds to the franticness of the situation.

I also thought the use of shaky cam and motion blur was appropriate here. She’s running for her life and overwhelmed with panic. It’s a disorienting feeling and the use of shaky cam communicated that well.
