Hello all,

Three quarter position, profile, facing camera. I'm curious of the general rules that apply and the emotional response that is to the blocking of actors towards the camera. I've been reading on symmetry, good for comedy, Kubrick used it to signify tension about to occur and so on. Could someone give me a quick crash course on what they feel about body placement in relation to camera? The feelings that certain positions exhibit to the audience. I'm blocking a satirical scene. Husband/Wife dialogue in the kitchen. I'm aware and have analyzed their emotions and changes throughout the scene, now I'm looking for those wonderful little film blocking techniques that convey these ideas. Anybody know something more than me? I bet so.

Thanks to you all.
