One thing I have always wondered about is how to shoot a conversation between two people and make it sound and look seamless. This would entail alternating shots from behind each of the actors so the audience can see actor "A" speaking but then switch to a reaction shot on the face of actor "B" while still hearing actor "A" speak.
I have the Adobe Production Suite and I'm just going to be shooting with the mic on the camera (yes, I know, not ideal).
For instance, let's say I have the actors play out the scene two times, with me filming from behind one actor the first take and then from behind the second actor on the second take. How do I make sure I can incorporate both angles and make sure they don't step on eachother's lines? Also, what effects in Adobe can smooth over the transition between clips that have different audio? (In other words, chopped up audio from each take) Sometimes I find it a bit jarring.
Hopefully I've explained the problem well enough, so if you know what I'm referring to, how do you do it well with one camera?
Thanks for taking the time to answer my question!
