Over the shoulder dialog in Stop motion
When is it necessary (normal?) to include the 'over the shoulder' person in a dialog scene?
With my stop motion I tend *not* to do it simply because it makes it very difficult to get my chubby fingers in to animate. The alternative that I use is to greenscreen the back of the person and then add it to the shot using bit of blur and darken.
Do you see a dialog scene focusing JUST on the talker and think "This is wrong" or do you not notice the person they're talking to isn't in shot?
What, if any, rules are there to follow or break?
<edit> Hope all that makes sense.
