Why Films Use the Dutch Camera Angle


The Dutch Angle in filmmaking was known as the Deutsch Angle because it was first created by German expressionism.

You’ve seen examples of this cinematic trick a lot of times while watching movies and it is meant to make the viewer feel disoriented or tense.

During World War I, German filmmakers took motivation from Expressionist artists and used these angles in landmark movies such as Nosferatu, released back in 1922.
