Dialogue, Shooting and editing

This interactive exercise introduces the practice of shooting and editing dialogue, with the help of a simulation. The dialogue is based on the novel “The heart of darkness” by Joseph Conrad. The student has to choose between different shots in the sequence according to the dramatic progression. In order to avoid creating confusion, the camera positions should stay on one side of the axis - the imaginary line which links the position the two people are facing.
