Film entire scene in each shot
So the photographer on my last two short films told teased me with the fact that I always record the entire scene in each shot. Say in a dialogue with an over the shoulder, close-up, POV etc on each character, I'd have them say all of their lines in each shot.
Doesn't it make sense to do this? I mean unless you plan how you wanna edit your before before you shoot it (or fx you have a close-up of cigarette being lit, which can only be used once in the scene).
Do you guys plan how you edit the film before you shoot it, and thereby only shoot parts of the scene in each shot, or do you like I do?
And what do you think would be the pros and cons of each method
