      Hi Master Roger,

      while shooting long takes, we are so carefully about the time of each composition in that shot. we can’t change that in editing.
      if the time is less, the audience got confused & not going to get those information in the shot.
      if the time is more, the audience got bored.

      I recently shot a short film. I don’t know the audience got it or not.

      how to overcome this?

      link to my short film:

      thank you

        I am not sure you can say that the length of the shot is entirely responsible for an audience understanding a film or not. Content and narrative drives the image rather than the image driving the narrative.
