Camera Anticipation

by Christine Becker

The Office is shot mockumentary style, and the show often stretches the believability of the documentary aesthetic for strategic purposes. Here, the cameraman anticipates Jim's line by panning over to him just in time, thus garnering a laugh. This can be viewed in contrast to the UK version of The Office, which (mostly) maintained the integrity of the documentary aesthetic.
