DRAMA SHOOT CHECKLIST (The following checklist is based on the most common errors beginning students make when shooting a drama production for the first time. Before rolling tape on a drama shoot, check the following six points to make sure you’re not making one of these easily avoidable “beginner’s errors” which can cost you a lot of extra time and grief in the editing room. Make these checks in addition to the DP Shot Checklist). 1 180 Rule / 4 th Wall - before shooting any part of a particular scene, first establish “the 180 line ” in your mind as the director, and communicate it to the camera operator and the crew. Mark it on the floor if you have to using gaffer’s tape or objects .... just don’t cross the line when shooting the master, OS or CU’s! First, establish a theater audience view of the stage or scene. You can place the camera anywhere that there are theater audience seats (proper 180 hemisphere) , but don’t place the camera anywhere back stage pointing at the audience (the opposite 180 hemisphere)

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
