Scene vs. Summary

This is an idea derived from classical literature ala Anton Chekhov.

In a story,
some things are scenes
& some things are summaries.

A summary is a narrative event glossing over swathes of time.

A scene is a narrative event dramatized with detail & in real-time.

Everything you film will either be a scene
or incorporated into a summary.
