Master deakins, Do you find yourself changing the angle of your lighting according to different frames when covering a single scene

Yes, I will sometimes change the light angle if I feel it beneficial for a shot even though it may be out of continuity. In fact, I did just that for a shot last night.

How much of the change of the light angle would you be OK with?

Would you ever flip the side of the key light for any reason?

Any angle that I think is possible without the audience being aware of it. I also flip the key light if I think it necessary to do so. This I do pretty rarely as I feel it can take the audience out of the 'reality' of a scene more than a small angle change.
