Goal: Shoot a sequence using a master shot and OTS shots. Edit in camera.
Method: Create a short scene where two people have a short conversation; having some point of conflict is probably good. There will be four 'beats' to the story (as described below).to another shot. (5-20 seconds)
Objective 1: Use a wide shot as your first shot. Show the two people in the setting and establish their position to each other. Have a good reason for switching from this to another shot. (5-20 seconds)
Objective 2: Shoot the 2nd shot from over one actor's shoulder, and choose a logical time to start and end this shot. (5-20 seconds)
Objective 3: Shoot the 3rd shot from over the other actor's shoulder, and choose a logical time to end this shot. (5-20 seconds)
Objective 4: Shoot the 4th shot from over the first actor's shoulder. This shot should contain the conclusion of the mini-story that is the scene, and should include the first actor leaving the scene; you can track with them, let them leave the frame, or another creative ending. (10-30 seconds)
