  1. Wow! Sincere thanks to everyone who replied. The information is invaluable and I truly appreciate it. I'm going to read these posts again and again. David - you have made me realise why I couldn't work it out. Thank you so much for taking the time to explain this to me. I have so much to learn. Jim - your advice is excellent and has made me realise a lot. You've given me much to think over. Most appreciated. Phillip - thanks for chiming in. Time to re-asses my approach to this craft. Best regards, Harry
  2. Hi all, I'm just starting out in the filmmaking world, so please forgive my lack of knowledge. I have no-budget film I'd like to make, and I'll be doing everything myself. I can't seem to wrap my head around the audio side of basic 2-actor coverage. That is, filming the over the shoulder shots, and the medium shot. Could someone break this down for me as though they're explaining it to a child? If I have the camera set up for an over the shoulder shot, and I'm booming the actors, am I booming both actors as they each speak? Or just one actor, and then the other actor when I do the reverse shot? And then for the medium or other shots? And then how should I piece the dialogue together in post? I have a reasonable knowledge of some aspects of filmmaking and post production, just can't get the logistics of this right in my head. Thanks, Harry
