The best crosswords will have clues that link to the effect of that particular shot. i.e. Clue: This shot would show the head and shoulders of a character and is often used to show the audience a character’s facial expression and so be suggestive of a particular emotional state. Answer: Close Up. Crosswordlabs is a good crossword generator but you may find a better one to use.
