Do you use two cameras to capture different angles of a scene or have the actors perform many takes and cut between the footage from the various takes?
Usually when shooting a scene, unless we deliberately have planned a long tracking shot or a long take from just one angle, we cover the scene from different angles and cut them together during post.
Do you normally use two or more cameras to get those takes or have the actors perform the exact same thing over and over again and use just one camera and light the shot for that particular angle?
If you use more than one camera, is it possible to light a scene in such a way that it looks nice on both the camera angles?
Sorry, I am a total newbie here. Please be gentle. I don't know much. I am learning.
