First off, get the camera up! You seem to be shooting lower, that is not usually good unless your going for affect. Your camera lens should be at least above the models eyes. No one wants to have people looking up their nose.

I kind of assume we needed the sensor parallel to the subject, not to have distortion ? I look a few videos, and I was under that impression.

This is somewhat true but your subject is 5+ feet tall right. You should shoot no lower that the subjects eyes if you can. Usually a few inches above the eyes as a rule. Like I said before, there are exceptions to any rule.
