INCLUDED IN THIS LESSON:  10:45 Minutes of Instructional Video and schematics-SUPPLIED W/ENGLISH SUBTITLES

IN THIS LESSON YOU WILL LEARN:  This lesson is Part 5 of a 22 part series that takes you on a journey from Script to Screen.  Every nuances is discussed in detail from the first scout with the director, the tech scout, the pre-rig, the blocking, rehearsals to the final angle composed, lit and shot.  Blocking is that mysterious unspoken topic that know one educates on.  In this lesson we pull back the Curtain and reveal How I Block, create, collaborate with the director to enable his or her vision.  How we position the character’s in the best way to elevate the story and the emotion of the scene.

  • Focus on what we need to see in the script
  • Follow the 180 degree rule and if you need to reset the line, do so with a neutral shot (like our Goose bell moment).
  • Find the emotion in the scene and think about how best to capture it on the faces of the characters.
