Medium Two-Shot

Go To

Possibly the single most popular shot on TV, it is a shot of two characters, framing their head and torso. The bottom of the frame cuts off the characters somewhere around the waist.

Along with the Over the Shoulder shot, it is one component of the Shot/Reverse Shot. Compare Half Empty Two Shot, a two-character shot where one character is conspicuously absent.

Please do not add examples to work pages, this merely defines the term.
