Talking Head

An expert or a journalist discussing the issues of the day, especially on television, the camera often zooms in on his or her head.

This tight focus is often used in interview situations where the background is not as important as the talking subject. It is also convenient in a movie destined for the Web because the small amount of movement in a talking-head shot compresses well for the Internet.
