Low-Budget Filmmaking Tip #130

Unless it’s a really masterful master shot…

Don’t spend all your time getting the master shot. A master shot is important, true, but you need to get coverage, other angles, lots of things for your editor to use.

(thanks to Brad Mays)

In this respect, our workshops kinda miss the mark — we usually get one angle, and one or maybe two takes.

But that’s very unusual and we’re only doing it that way because we only have two hours to shoot everything.
