Slapstick - Charlie Chaplin

Low-tech, mostly long/medium shots (showing all of the action), fast motion (+ shaky camera), B+W
Slapstick is about the action within the frame, more than the way that frame is shot. It is about simplicity, not gimmicks, and the shots used are purely functional, as opposed to being used to create tension in a scene. The camera placement is purely chosen to make the action taking place within easier to see, and laugh at!
