COMPOSITION: composition is not only used in static images but also in film and television. It includes all the elements that contribute to the appearance of a frame. It includes the way that people and objects are arranged for specific dramatic effect.
FRAME: A film's smallest unit is a frame, which is like a still photograph. When you press pause on a film, that still image is the frame. As viewers, we are shown 24 frames per second, and in total 144,000 frames in a feature length film.
SHOT: The term "shot" refers to the appearance of what is in each frame. This is determined by how far the camera is placed from the subject, the camera's angle as well as any movement. Each shot has a purpose and is chosen based on not only what is happening in the scene but genre, topic, and audience.
