5-Shot Sequence

Our advanced editing students (Cinema 32-2) are assigned to shoot and edit a "5-shot sequence," a technique for ensuring enough coverage to edit a scene by capturing at least 5 shots - master, over-the-shoulder, reverse OTS, close-up, insert/POV, etc. Here's a good one by Gankhulug Ganbold starring Calvin Chacon and Adam Della Maggiora. It's also a good reminder of the HFPA scholarship deadline of Oct. 21st!
