Over the Shoulder Shot

The Over the Shoulder Shot shows what a character sees while at the same time showing the back of the character’s head in the foreground. It is useful to show the distance between an observer and the action.

It is often used to show that two characters are interacting without showing the face of an unimportant character. It can also be used to show vulnerability, being often used when a character is being chased.
