Cheating and stealing shots: Creating a Short Film: 05 Directing

Cheating shots and stealing shots are two unrelated techniques to help filmmakers get the shot they need to tell their stories. Cheating shots is when lights, actors or other elements are adjusted after they've already been shot in order to create a better shot. Stealing shots refers to quickly and secretly getting shots at a location without film permits, usually with a skeleton crew.
