How Camera Movement creates meaning in Attack the Block

From Film Studies Fundamentals, the first in a new video essay series; Quick Take. In each video essay we take a look at one aspect of film language, in one moment from one film and analyse how it creates meaning. In this film, we look at Joe Cornish's ATTACK THE BLOCK and examine how two camera movements near the start of the film tell the audience that this is a science fiction film, set in the UK and made by a Star Wars fan.
