Professor: Lori Ingle lingle@mail.ucf.edu NOTES COVERAGE: 3 ELEMENTS Recommended Reading: SBS Pgs. 195-220 Covering more than two elements (people) means that you will at some point change an axis. The key is to follow the relationship and interaction between characters and the interest of a given character as offered by the eyes. This can create double the coverage on opposite sides of the line for each character. However, because of time constraints when shooting any film, making a shot list around the emotion/objective/decision points in a scene will lead to an economy of shots. Limit yourself to a few key setups. If you are establishing more than four sightlines to move around the space in a large group, you are creating difficult problems for yourself. Finding the lines depends on which characters are the principle players in the scene: Between 2 principle players (SBS pg. 210) Between 3 principle players (SBS pg. 210) Between 4 principle players (SBS pg. 211) In this last one, coverage could follow the outlined line of action. However, the dotted line gives us a basic line of action that permits close-ups, singles, two-shots and a group shot. This means that we are establishing a general viewing direction. Rev. 1/10
