Dutch Angle Shot Examples ►►
A dutch angle or dutch tilt is a great way to signal to your viewer that something in your scene is wrong. That said, many filmmakers have used the dutch angle too much, or in such a thoughtless manner that they left cinematic effectiveness on the table.
Dutch angles were originally created during the film era of German Expressionism, and they are a perfect cinematic tool for jarring a viewer, and signalling trouble, danger, or general unrest within a situation.
Our video breaks down:
When to use a dutch angle
How far to tilt your camera

When you finish this video, you will understand everything you need to know about dutch angles and dutch tilts.
The end result: You will be able to effectively use dutch angles in your next project.
