Camera Blocking A War Comedy Scene

TV director Marcus Stokes helps us do the camera blocking on an episode of a
web series developed by UK director Tristan Ofield. This is a 4 page scene,
so we need to find a way to make the camera work interesting, or the scene
could feel excruciatingly slow. We also discuss how shooting multiple cameras
keeps the actors from burning out, and how to make the acting more interesting.
