I have never heard of Russian angle as a term to describe any type of camera position or framing.
Where did you see or hear this?

'Dutching' a camera is basically pivoting the camera sideways - you no longer have a level horizon... to do this you either deliberately undo the head and de-bobble it or use a dutch head for more control. Don't know why it's called dutching the camera 'though maybe it's because of all those 'coffee shops' they have.

I too have never heard or a 'Russian angle'...

Me neither. And from my experience with russian/soviet films there isn't a special camera angle unique or typical to these. What's your source?

Cheers, Dave

This is in the lighting forum, perhaps Russian Angle is a lighting term in some part of the world ???

Might just mean the same thing... people just call it different things. Perhaps it was a Dutchman who started using it...
