Here is a montage by Brian Carroll (Editcadet1), of straight down shots used in various films.

This type of shot is commonly referred to as a God’s Eye View angle. The camera lens is perpendicular to the subject without any POV reference, which gives the viewer an omniscient viewpoint of the character and the surrounding space.

The video is cut to the Yeah Yeah YeahsDown Boy.

From the peanut gallery of YouTube commentors, we’ve attempted to compile a list, in chronological order, of the films that were used in the supercut. We’re still missing about ten titles; test your movie trivia knowledge and help us fill in the gaps. It’s fun!
