"Best Part About Arson", By Alec Jarnagin

This shot is a great example of making dialog come to life on screen. A five page conversation is turned into a journey of sorts as the actors make their way through the fire scene, finding various items and meeting various people.

While much of it may seem improvised, with two sets of stairs, falling ceilings, and a ton of smoke, timing in a shot like this could not be more critical.

One final device that is enjoyable to watch is the device chosen to represent the firemen when their faces are obscured by smoke. The little chest flashlight is a simple but perfect solution.
