Learn more about framing and composition for filmmaking — Head-room is the space between the top of your subject’s head and the top frame of the composition
Lead room is the space where dramatic energy is directed. For close up shots, lead room will often be referred to as “nose room”.
Anticipatory framing establishes that the camera needs to anticipate the movement within a scene rather than react to it. If you’re reacting to movement you’ll generally end up with jerky, reactionary shots. You want to be able to predict the movement within a frame. This is even more difficult for documentary filmmakers who often don’t have the privilege of marking or blocking out their scenes. For this reason it’s important that filmmakers practice camera operation.
