PODCAST: Mastering The Art Of Coverage As a Director

Using scene coverage in unique or unexpected ways is one of the most effective ways for you to leave your mark on a film. Filmmakers are often taught to simply cover their scenes with just a master and closeups, which often leads to less interesting storytelling and less dynamic scenes, even though better choices are readily available.

Over the course of this episode, I outline some of my techniques for breaking away from traditional coverage, and explain how to use your unique voice as a filmmaker to discover more interesting methods of coverage, and connect with your audience far more effectively.

I also outline some practical ways in which you can approach coverage in prep, on set, and in post to ensure you are maximizing your creative results every step of the way.

    I find your posts really useful. Do you think you’ll ever cover directing actors?

    • Great idea… I will be sure to touch on that in a future podcast! Appreciate the suggestion.
