Read the comic then come back.
Okay, how many people noticed that Sheva and Chris traded places? I noticed it, but I put the thing together.
I usually try to construct dialog scenes so that one party is always on one side of the frame, and the other party sticks to the opposite side. The the shot is framed so that Ann is to the left and Bob is on the right, I’ll try to preserve that as much as possible. (I’m pretty sure this is a rule they teach you in film school as well. Don’t do an abrupt cut to the other side of a conversation, because the eye will tell you that the actors switched places, not the camera. Not a hard rule, but a “know what you’re doing before you break this rule” kind of thing.) If the camera swings around and views the scene from the other side, I’ll try to avoid using that view because it’s sometimes disorienting. If I have to use it, I’ll flip the frame. As long as there isn’t any writing in the shot this usually works out fine.
I wanted to keep Wesker on the right for consistency, but the camera moved from his left shoulder to his right. As usual, I flipped the frame. If Wesker was just talking to Chris this wouldn’t be a problem, but Chris and Sheva were side-by side. No matter what I did, SOMEONE was going to swap spots. I decided that swapping the tiny figures was the least disruptive thing to do.
I’d have just swapped Chris and Sheva via photoshoping, but the patterned floor made this problematic.
This screenshot stuff can get surprisingly complex. Sometimes I think it might be better to just learn to draw.
Even allegedly smart people can make life-changing blunders that seem very, very obvious in retrospect.
Overused Words in Game Titles
I scoured the Steam database to figure out what words were the most commonly used in game titles.

Obviously they are. Right? Actually, is this another one of those sneaky hard-to-define things?
