Hello Roger and fellow forum members,
I was wondering if any of you would mind sharing your thoughts regarding how an OTS or single MS differ in terms of their impact on an audience?
I have been rewatching the gas station scene in "No Country for Old Men" - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M4Wek1VIfjA» - and I've been trying to figure out how my response to the scene would change if the OTS were not OTS, and if the singles were not singles, but I haven't really been able to put my finger on it.
My thoughts so far have been that an OTS has a tendency to put the audience closer to what the character. whose shoulder we are looking over, is experiencing, but I have also had moments where I felt as though an OTS gave me more of an objective feeling - as though I was listening in on a conversation I was not supposed to hear.
I also think the distance from the eye line also plays into how subjective or objective a single or OTS feels.
In either case, I was mostly wondering if you, Roger, or anyone else, would share their thoughts on this matter.
Thank you for your time and for this wonderful forum.
