Another example of shot/reverse shot

In this clip, we witness a conversation between two main characters, Katniss and Peter. They both equally framed perhaps to show they are in this together. The lighting in this scene is also used to orientate the audience in this shot as it clearly shines on one side of the actors faces, so when the shot changes side it is clear that the characters are facing each other. The mise en scene is quiet and secluded this is too this as a period of reflection and preparation for the characters and its ultimate purpose is to develop the characters relationship whilst clearly communicating to the audience what the characters are thinking and feeling.
