I just found this montage of various films which use the God’s Eye View or omniscient point of view. The single piece of music and consistent camera angle connects the shots and makes it feel like they’re all from the same film. It seems like death and morality are the biggest recurring themes for this POV.
“This is a montage 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 Yeah’s “Down Boy” from the “Is Is” album.”
