Master Shots, Volume 2: 100 Ways to Shoot Great Dialogue Scenes


Master Shots, Volume 2: 100 Ways to Shoot Great Dialogue Scenes Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

This 11x7.5" resource for film students and professionals offers two-page spreads explaining and illustrating techniques for shooting dialogue scenes in films. Kenworthy, a film director and producer, emphasizes that a cinematic look doesn't have to cost a lot; it's more important to know where to put the camera and how to position and direct the actors. Techniques are demonstrated with b&w photos from real films, such as The International, Ocean's Eleven, Ghost World, and V. The corresponding computer illustrations, which show where the cameras should be positioned, were created using Poser 8, which enables users to animate characters while moving a virtual camera around them. Camera techniques are grouped into chapters on situations such as power struggles, group conversations, walking and talking, intimacy, and creative staging.
