Thanks, yes I did do some adjustment of the lighting afterwards to make that work. The part where he’s stood holding the captain is now quite dark and then the light level raises. it helps with that issue, but I agree with your assessment of the filming styles.
It has been my intention to reframe shots here and there and I can introduce dynamism in other shots throughout the film… but that would be a case of trying to fit a round peg in a square hole, by chiselling away at the hole.
Although this sequence is really cool, I think I do have to accept that it’s not going to work.
