BACKGROUND

Shot-for-shot (or shot-for-shot adaptation, shot-for-shot remake) is a way to describe a visual work that is transferred almost completely identically from the original work without much interpretation.

PRODUCTION USES

In the film industry, most screenplays are adapted into a storyboard by the director and/or storyboard artists to visually represent the director’s vision for each shot, so that the crew can understand what is being aimed for.
