Best Techniques for Single Camera Cinematography?
I'm a writer/director working on making my first short, which is a horror/thriller. For budgetary reasons, I'm considering shooting with a single camera. I was really impressed with how Denis Villeneuve and Roger Deakins shot Blade Runner 2049 with just one camera. I'm looking for tips and advice on how to make a single camera film work. And what would the workflow be like on set when I need to change shots and angles? I.e. do I need actors to stand still while I change shots? etc.
