This is interesting blog post about why having an establishing shot is not needed. It is the one shot I usually forget to do anyway. Check out his FtF member Michael Rosenblum's New York Film School blog. Lots of great info on video storytelling from the master!
Thanks for the link Chris.
Thanks for this. I almost never do it. When I do it's for news and I NEVER start with it.
Sorry, that was thanks Colin, not Chris :)
