I got a script for a short where there are two characters engaged in a dialogue. I cannot reveal the second character until the end of the film (she is an acid attack victim which we do not reveal till the end)
The director is suggesting OTS, Top angle and POV. So basically shot, no reverse shot. But I'm concerned how they are going to intercut and also how I'm gonna keep it visually engaging if I can't cut back to the reverse.
Time of day is mid day/afternoon so can't really play with shadows.
It's a 6 minuter and we reveal character 2's face at around the 5 min mark.
I have suggested maybe showing a side of her face which is not affected.
Any other ideas??
