The shot type and camera movements effect on the audience
The scene begins with a shot showing the positions and environment that both characters are in, giving the audience a feel for what the scene is going to consist of. From this shot you can see the distance between either character and the anxiety in the room that the audience will pick up on. The two men are then only shown individually on the left side of the picture; being on the side is signifying that they should be standing side by side, but the obvious unease of the situation means there is now great distance between them. The camera always has one person in the shot, meaning their conversation is the most relevant and important aspect of the scene which has the effect of keeping the audience engulfed in the action to see what the outcome will be and what any problems there are between the two characters.
