I tried my best to soften or compose them out and most of the time it worked. But, for instance we had a dolly wide of a bartender walking to our two main characters to serve them a drink. I had two keys, one on each of the actors and set up sources to light the bartenders path. The problem was I had two shadows created by those two keys.
No one else noticed until I pointed them out but I just want to know some tips on how to avoid such problems. Naturally there are multiple shadows all the time if your in a club/restaurant/bar atmosphere so I guess its not killer.

Of course, the flip side is that if the audience is paying so much attention to the lighting, they're probably not very involved in the story...

I feel your pain though, I've had and still have plenty of agonizing times spent on set as well, trying to deal with unpleasing shadows.
