A) I often hear about the excruciating amount of work that goes into shots of only 1-5 seconds.
1. Does every individual shot need to have some extensive thought put into it and meaning behind it?
B) When I watch films, say for example in an action scene, the shots cut back and forth from different angles.
1. Is this possible to do well with only one camera?
2. Do they film everything from one angle and then again from a second angle or do they stop in the middle of filming a fight and move the cameras? Like in a Bourne movie the fights appear to happen so fast yet they get some close up shots that I don’t see how they could get without moving the cameras around every few seconds.
3. How often should you cut between angles/shots, even in non-action scenes? (Especially though, in chase scenes, when there seems to be a new shot every 1-2 seconds.)
