Master Shots Vol. 2: 100 Ways to Shoot Great Dialogue Scenes: the shots in this volume are dedicated to handling dialogue scenes. Kenworthy offers more elegant methods to capture dialogue scenes than the standard shot reverse shot approach. Dialogue scenes are often more difficult to present in an effective visual manner than action scenes. Many of the techniques in this volume offer ways for the filmmaker to shoot the entire dialogue scene in a single shot. These particular techniques will require a lot of rehearsal, and excellent actors to achieve good results. Some low-budget filmmakers might not have these luxuries, but it certainly doesnt hurt for them to be aware of these methods.
