Getting coverage: Creating a Short Film: 05 Directing

Coverage is the acquisition of camera shots in a scene. When directors understand how to shoot a film properly, they can be more efficient, which allows them to get more and better shots. If film directors get too much coverage for their movies, it's a burden on editors. But if filmmakers don't get enough coverage, then it restricts the creative freedom of the editor in post production.
