Storyboarding: the Three-Shot

Today the topic is the three shot -- a composition that not only includes three people, but deals with the relationships between them

Click on the full-screen button (at the bottom right

), to make the movie nice and BIG!

The general guideline for when to cut is that you always want to be looking at whatever is the most important thing to the story at any given time. At this point, the dramatic relationship on the screen is specifically between three people: Portia, Mary-Frances, and Bessie.

Other topics in this video include acting, corresponding pairs of camera angles, scene descriptions, contrast as a storytelling tool, and "The Magic of the Cutaway."
