Three Scenarios

We’ll use the following three scenarios in this chapter to describe how to set up the scene, sequence your shots, and frame the subject in the camera. In subsequent chapters, we’ll revisit these scenarios to discuss how to light and mike each scene.

Of course, not all of your video shoots will fall neatly into one of these categories; there are weddings, sporting events, parties, and literally hundreds of other events that we shoot with our camcorders. Keep in mind that most of the rules below, particularly those relating to framing, apply equally to virtually any video shoot.
