I've been watching RT shorts and have been wondering if they film these angles in sequence or if they shoot all of one camera angle and then move to the next one. Heres a link to a video. (It has vulgarity in it if you care) http://roosterteeth....archive/?id=802
Thanks in advance to whoever gives me an answer. Yea I know im a noob

They shot for coverage (the entire scene from each angle). You can tell because they bounce back and forth between the same basic camera angles dozens of times.

um, noob and Director of Photography are contradictory terms when describing oneself. The Director of Photography is one of the if not [the] most experienced person on Set.

Wow, I wouldn't have responded to his post if I'd seen that title. There must be a gumball machine somewhere giving out d.o.p. certificates along with the plastic sheriff badges.

Change that to: "... on a PROFESSIONAL INDUSTRY set." :) ANYONE can call themselves ANYTHING at anytime no matter their experience or skillset. Isn't that the Capitalist Way? ;)

The point is, there are two primary ways to becoming a DP as a career. One is to begin as a Loader or 2nd AC and slowly work your way up through the ranks, with absolutely NO guarantees that you'd ever move up to the next level, muchless to DP status.

The other is to just go out and "be" a DP, which means that while there is likely a lot that the person needs to learn, he will gain experience as he goes while being recognized as a DP to those who meet or hear about him.

So, no, being a "noob" and "DP" at the same time are not necessarily mutually exclusive. There have been a few "noobs" who have jumped into the arena with practically no experience who are now at the top of the heap. And there are plenty who have tried that who have failed. But in the end, the DP may or may not be the "most experienced person on Set." Any number of people, from Grips to Electrics, to ACs, or Set Decorators may have oodles more experience than a DP at any given time. :)

No.. that is how Socialism works... just take it ;).... also (as a DP) I did not take either of the routes you mentioned... there are other routes as well. I've never AC'd a day in my life... I was too busy Lighting.
