Theinitial shot we used was an over the shoulder shot- this immediately put the audience in the position of character A, Almost like a point-of-view shot
The next shot was a long shot down the corridor. We chose to use this as it would show that the character A is walking from distance to her destination and gives a good effect.
The next shot is a close up of the character A walking down a corridor, from a side perspective. She looks up and down and sighs, showing impatience.
Thenext shot includes an over the should shot which continues into a low angle shot...
...From the previous over the shoulder shot we get a display of match-on-action from a low angle shot, then moving onto a medium shot of the character A reaching for the door handle and opening the door.

A medium shot of character B as she sits at a table ‘asleep’, character A takes a seat.
