    Default Did an angle?

    I don't understand the following highlighted word,

    Nicholson: ... But each time I did a take or an angle, it involved smoking almost an entire joint. We were smoking regular dope, pretty good Mexican grass from the state of Michoacán. ... - page 139, Jack Nicholson, December 2012, Playboy

    Please help me. Thanks a lot.

    I'd say it means a wide angle shot in filming.
