ABOUT THIS MODULE

There are many different ways you can shoot a scene and different reasons to do so - it isn't just about shooting a master shot and close-ups, but creating a shot that's right for the story.

In this module, you will learn how to craft a oner, create a psychological impact for each shot, create compelling establishing shots, manipulate the pacing and rhythm of a scene, determine the opening visual, and enhance transitions from one scene to the next.
