"Published on Apr 4, 2016
How a director stages a scene dramatically affects the story - in this experiment at YouTube Space LA, we take a boilerplate police detective script and shoot it five ways with five different types of blocking to demonstrate how direction and acting can really change the feel of a scene.

This experiment will take the exact same script shooting the scene using standard over the shoulder back and forth - advanced over the shoulder with business, a One Take shot, a Romantic comedy blocking and a Zucker Brothers style comedy." Created by FilmmakerIQ.
