FT 526 Lecture: Thursday, June 3

Why multiple angles?
-- convey different information to viewers, depending on what angle is (picnic, napkin, gun)
-- maintain viewers' interest (weak reason according to Schneider)
-- any good scene changes as it goes along.

What's important for viewer to see?

Why coverage?
Let actors go all the way through (easier than doing bits and pieces). Cover both sides. Avoids pre-editing, gives you options.

Overlap your coverage -- clean entrances, clean exits.

Subtext
Meaning beneath words. Example: excuse me, I was waiting for that parking spot -- variety of possible meanings.

AD duties
Call actors with address, times, props/costumes, coats, lunch.
