English term or phrase: Block Out
De nuevo en el plató de una peli, el director comenta que: "We blocked out camera positions while I rehearsed everybody's positions".
Me tiene un poco confundido eso de "block out". ¿Quiere decir algo como "posicionamos"? No encuentro ningún glosario de cine mediamente decente de inglés-español en el Internet. Hay uno, el Online Film Dictionary, pero de momento no me ha solucionado ninguna duda.
Gracias

planificar
Explanation:
Here’s the definition from Webster’s hypertext.

block out v 1: plan where and when songs should be inserted into a theatrical production, or plan a theatrical production in general 2: prevent from entering, as of light [syn: {screen}] 3: shield from light; as in photography [syn: {mask}] 4: indicate roughly; "We sketched out our plan"

Based on the above, it’s more like “planificamos la posición de las cámaras.”

Hope it helps.

Gracias. Sospecho que el término "block out" es, en efecto, "planificar la posición" en este contexto.

posicionamos está bien


Explanation:
De lo que entiendo del cine, "blocking out a shot" es sencillamente probando y verificando los angulos de las tomas, para saber donde posicionar la camara mientras que actuen los actores. No sé si esto incluye marcando exactamente donde estará la camara.

Espero que eso le ayude.

Bloquearon


Explanation:
Lo que yo entiendo es:
bloqueó (bloquearon)las posiciones de la camara, durante un tiempo en tanto ensayó las posiciones de todos.

"block out" es bloquear, no creo que haya vuelta de hoja.
