Whip Pan Wide Shots
A whip pan is when a video snaps dramatically from one shot to another with a swift panning motion. It’s best used when someone throws something, and another person catches it, etc. You can even edit these clips to make it look like you are both throwing and catching – the key is combining two different wide-shot video clips and the trick is pacing. You’ll want both wide shots to pan in the same direction, at the same speed. Master this, and have one wide shot throwing something, and the other wide-shot “catching” the same object. Some acting is required, but mastering this technique isn’t as hard as it looks!
