Refers to moving the camera vertically without changing the angle at which it points (that would be a Tilt
). Usage: "pedestal up," "pedestal down".
The name is a reference to the spring or gas counterbalanced stand to which a studio camera is mounted (they can also be power adjustable). This same move can be renamed according to the equipment used, i.e. "boom up", "crane up", etc.
See Also: Boom Up and Over
for a compound camera move derived from this.
Not to be confused with Pedestal
, the Pokemon fanfic..
