Hola everyone,

I need to help our directors direct a crew who only speaks French.

If anyone here is French-speaking, please can you guys translate the following terminology for me into French:

1) Zoom in/out
2) Centre the shot
3)headroom:
4)track left/right
5)Looking room
6)tilt up/down
7)pan

I speak French, but I need to brush up on my TV/film terminology. I have tried looking them up in my diCtionary etc but I can't find them anywhere.Your help would be GREATLY appreciated!

Regards,

Andrea
