What is a Single Cam Comedy?

0

There are basically two formats for TV sitcoms – single cam and multi-cam.

 A single cam comedy is shot and presented using the conventional methods of motion picture story telling. In other words, it looks and feels like your watching a movie with NO laugh track. In a single cam comedy, typically one camera is used and filming requires different set ups where the actors have to act out the same scene for each set up. The best angles and takes are then assembled in post-production – the same process used in conventional film making. Unlike a mutli-cam sitcom, there is no live audience, no laugh track and you can usually see the entire 360 degree setting.

 Notable single cam comedies include:

–       THE OFFICE

–       PARKS AND RECREATION

–       COMMUNITY

–       MODERN FAMILY

–       30 ROCK

–       ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT

–       NEW GIRL

–       MY NAME IS EARL
