Some people refer to it as ‘Bird’s eye view’, but the creator of this montage of cuts from films refers to it as ‘God’s eye view’. (I’m definitely going to start referring to it as God’s eye view from now on.)
Producer Brian Carroll, explains:
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.
So sit back, relax, and enjoy seeing what god sees for a few minutes.
