Using dramatic and situational irony: Creating a Short Film: 05 Directing

Dramatic irony and situational irony are two tools that filmmakers can use to tell better stories and involve the withholding of information and the revealing of information to the audience. Film directors can use dramatic irony by giving the audience information that the characters don't have. Situational irony is created by playing against the expectations of the audience.
