Hi. I have a slightly technical question.
When watching shows (NAVY NCIS comes to mind), a single
scene would change camera angle every 2-5 seconds, and
end up using approx. 12 camera angles. That all in a
50 second scene.
While the camera angle switches are
very quick, the dialogue and acting seems seemless, like
there are 12 camera's on the set. Somehow seeing the frequency
of these switching shots, I suspect its only one or two camera's.
How is such recording done ?
Do they re-record every line said ? Do they film the whole
scene over and over and record just one angle at the time and
Or is it all recorded using alternate shots ?
Bonus points for more info on how to achieve this with one camera...
Thank you for your valuable time reading this.
