Shot Lists example: Scenes 1 & 2

Below are the shot lists used for scenes 1 and 2. The additional scenes shown in scene 2 will be used in scene 3 of the film but were recorded at the same place as scene 2. The shot lists along with the storyboards were extremely helpful in getting the film shot as quickly and effectively as possible. Having a two-camera setup helped a lot with getting all of these shots covered in as little time as possible. In hindsight I wished I had got more ‘cutaway’ shots covered through this sheet to cover any potential errors.
