German translation:off camera/leave English
Explanation:
O.C. (script command)
Also: O.S. (Off-screen), Off-camera
This is the abbreviation rarely seen next to the CHARACTER'S name (usually in brackets) before certain bits of dialog. Basically, it means the writer specifically wants the voice to come from somewhere unseen. For example, in The Truman Show, when Meryl calls to Truman, who's in the bathroom, her dialog is marked with an (O.S.), but could be also be marked with (O.C.). She's in the scene, but she's not on camera,so she's Off-screen, or Off-camera.
