This post is to encourage you to think of your scenes from a variety of angles. As we’ve seen with the shot reverse shot or shot/counter shot it is sometimes necessary to literally shoot a scene from different angles in order to create continuity.

In trying to get the best out of your actors and move a scene from script to screen we also may need to try out different approaches. In the above quote, “When I get stuck on a scene, I usually just change the weather;” we see that by simply changing one element you can potentially change the whole mood and tone of a scene. So if you get stuck writing a scene try changing the setting or another element to see if it comes to life.
