 “A terrific sequel to the first Master Shots. If there’s a cool way to move the camera, Kenworthy has explained it to us. I can’t wait to get this book into my students’ hands.”  —John Badham, director, Saturday Night Fever, WarGames; author, I’ll Be in My Trailer

Dialogue scenes are the most important moments in your film, but most directors get them wrong. If you block your scenes well, you do more than capture the basic scene; you echo the meaning, emotion, and drama of every moment. That is never more important than with dialogue.

Whatever your budget, there is an exciting way to capture dialogue. It is a tragedy that so many directors are happy to open a scene with a moving master shot, and then just settle into dull coverage for the dialogue. You can do better than that and Master Shots Vol 2 gives you 100 ways to shoot dynamic dialogue.

Building on the success of the bestselling Master Shots, this volume goes much deeper. Includes more than 200 diagrams illustrating camera positions.
