A very wide angle shot that shows the locale of the scene. This familiarizes the audience with where the scene is taking place.

Shows two characters interacting, usually

A medium or close up shot including

: a series of scenes, or shots, complete in itself. A sequence may occur in a single setting, or in several settings.
A sequence can be compared to a chapter in a book.
