Short Film Pace Is Too Quick
I’m making a short film (2:30 in length,) and I’m finding that the pacing seems to fast. Not that the actual length of clip is too short, but that it feels as if I’m arriving to the next scene without enough context.
The issue is I don’t know what B-Roll I need. I’ve shot in my house a certain way to allow the story to work, but it’s not geographically correct, so showing shots of the house could break the viewers perception of how every scene fits together.
How do I shoot B-Roll that gives purpose to the next scene without ruining the perceived perception of “my world?”
It’s a short horror film, if that helps.
