I liked this series very much. It is very intelligent and respectful to see the actors natural motion first. Were the camera motions also adapted on day of shoot or did you have the switl idea before seeing the blocking?

      @mkrjf HI mkrjf, We knew the rough blocking of where they would be sitting, laying and standing but did not have this cross over the line moment, the director Stephen Fung saw the chemistry and how it was playing out and added this, which I love when these serendipity moments come together. It is the magic.

Very nice, I get the keyframe concept, reading the script and planning those in advance. You block on the day of the shoot? Were there any advance rehearsals or conversations with the director to give you clues?

I’m not sure why but it says I have to pay 15 credits to watch this lesson when I already have access to all lessons inside this module.
