Need help with directing a camera shaking scene

Hello dear Episodians,
I need a little help with a scene where two people are kissing very passionately. I saw many authors doing this, where it seems like one character just dragged or pushed another character against a wall or something, the camera shakes and also a sound like someone hit themselves with something hard. So, I’m in need of that sound name as well as how to direct this scene. I hope whatever I said makes sense to someone. Thank you. :grinning:

I hope that gives the general idea of the shake.^
You could also use ampersand followed by a number of zooms on the one line so it shakes whilst the action of the characters happens:
&zoom on x y to % in s THEN zoom on x y to % in s THEN zoom on x y to % in s etc etc
@CHAR1 walks to spot s x y in zone # in s AND CHAR2 walks to spot s x y in zone # in s THEN CHAR1 starts animation AND CHAR2 starts animation AND CHAR1 faces left/right AND CHAR2 faces left/right

You could also slightly delay the shake:
&pause for s THEN zoom on x y to % in s THEN zoom on x y to % in s THEN zoom on x y to % in s etc etc
@CHAR1 walks to spot s x y in zone # in s AND CHAR2 walks to spot s x y in zone # in s THEN CHAR1 starts animation AND CHAR2 starts animation AND CHAR1 faces left/right AND CHAR2 faces left/right

Someone will explain this better but it’s exactly like zooming. You zoom slightly in the top, then slightly zoom downward, and time it so this occurs very fast.
