Term: Subsequent Point-of-View (shot)

Share This
« Back to Glossary Index

A special form of point-of-view shot, in which the viewers see something or someone within a frame without any indication that this might represent the point-of-view of another person. The subsequent cut to another shot then reveals a character observing what was in the first shot. In a certain sense, the subsequent point-of-view shot can be regarded as a reversed gaze shot. This kind of point-of-view shot often introduces an element of surprise.
