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..
