    Default Do I HAVE TO use a high shutter speed for this effect?

    For my upcoming project I want to do a scene where a character looks like he is driving really fast in a race against time sort of thing.

    I took some tips from film riot on how they do their car chases, such as in these two videos.

    At 3:30 in the first video, he talks about how one should use a fast shutter speed in order to make it look like the car is going faster.

    At 6:35 in the second clip, he says to move the camera around a lot to make the car look like it's going faster.

    However, I don't plan on having a lot of camera movement in the other scenes, so I wonder if I decide to move it around a lot now all of a sudden that it could come off as a total inconsistency in style, as the camera did not move a lot before, and it's only choosing to move around a lot in this scene.

    Also, as for the high shutter speed, Saving Private Ryan look that they talk about doing to make a car look like it's going faster, I personally don't like that look, and was not planning on using it anywhere else. So if I have to use it to make a car look like it's going faster, will it come off as jarring to an audience, since this high shutter speed style is used here, but no where else in the movie.

    What do you think? Is it okay for one scene to have a very different style in a movie, compared to the rest, or do I have to do the whole movie that way, just to make a car look like it's going faster in one scene?
