Day 58: More Shot List Work

Wow, the last few days have been really productive when it comes to the shot list. I’ve been making a lot of progress in the second act and part of that is because it’s very efficient to do a shot list based on the idea of sequences rather than individual scenes. There’s something about making sure these scenes are connected that helps keep me mentally in the movie than when the scenes are independent. When they aren’t really connected by a single event then they can still be important but I essentially have to get back into visualizing the movie whereas with a sequence, it’s like a natural extension.
