Cutting a narrative scene that is multicamed
on Aug 19, 2013 at 7:17:36 pm


I'm cutting a feature and we are using from 2 to 7 cameras on some scenes. My assistant editor is syncing and multiclipping all the scenes with more than one camera, including dramatic dialogue scenes. In most of the A and B angles, the shot does not stay the same for the entire take but roves around from FS to CU and from Character to Character. In addition, on some shots they change the angles for some of the takes without changing the shot #.


I've cut with the multicam function on music videos but never a dramatic narrative scene - I usually treat each angle as a separate take.

I would love to hear from folks with more experience what strategy people use to log and cut this kind of material when it's delivered as synced multicam.
