In film, a shot is a continuous strip of motion picture film, created of a series of frames, that runs for an uninterrupted period of time. It generally portrays a subject. Shots are generally filmed with a single camera and can be of any duration. A shot can be compared to a word with each frame being a letter, a scene as being a whole sentence, and a sequence as being an entire paragraph or chapter.
