Every Frame a Painting gives filmmaking advice based on how the Coen Brothers film conversation. Instead of over the shoulder tripod shots, they take their audience right into the middle of the conversation by placing the camera in between the characters.

Enjoy a short but helpful breakdown in an area of cinematography we normally don’t pay much attention to.
