DAY 11 + crane.
A crane is most obviously used to view the actors or the set from above or to move up and away from them making the scene feel grand and some times final. Camera cranes go back to the dawn of movie-making, and were frequently used in silent films to enhance the epic nature of large sets and massive crowds.
