Tracking and panning

Frank Farmer, an experienced bodyguard, avoids feeling any kind of emotion in order to do his job more effectively. He falls in love with the Rachel Marron, the star he is paid to protect. And this throws him into turmoil…

A - Identify the camera movement

This is a pan shot. The camera pivots on its axis, without moving along the ground.

B - What effect is produced ?

The camera swivels from left to right to frame Rachel in the background and reveals what is preoccupying Frank. Thise camera movement, together with the shift from blurred to sharp focus, reveals in the image what the character is thinking about.
