Two Characters Talking (over shoulder talking) *Solved*



So there is this one thing I’ve noticed when I read other peoples stories. Is where one character talks rear faced to the camera / screen and then the other is facing the screen. Which is pretty explainable, but then they zoom into the character. See i’m confused if the character that is facing rear is slowly moving away as the camera zoom in. I hope that makes sense, cause if it does and you know what I’m talking about… Please help!

Joseph Evans has (if I’m remembering correctly) a script template for the type of thing you’re talking about as far as I understand. If I happen to find it, I’ll add it to my reply! :slight_smile:
Edit: Go to this link for the template!


Thanks :slight_smile:


No problem! Glad to help
