Hey do you know how to make an over-the shoulder shot?



Episode Life has a great template for over-the-shoulder shots where you can input your character names and it creates the template for you.


Thanks so much!


How do you fade in and fade out overlays?


You actually can’t. What authors do is make an overlay of the background and add it in and fidget with the opacity to fade the overlay in and out. Here’s a guide made by the masterful @Dara.Amarie that will help:
