    Post Film-voiceover shot

    A soliloquy is something you'd find in a play, usually in a Renaissance play (and certainly one by Shakespeare!). It is a speech a character makes while alone on stage, usually to work out his thoughts. It's a bit like a sort of film-voiceover shot, where you hear the character speak but no-one within the world of the film can hear it.
    It's a bit like a sort of film-voiceover shot,............................
    What does the noun phrase film-voiceover shot mean?

    In my view, it is a part of a movie or film which is short and in which the speaker's voice is heard.
    Is my idea all wright ?
    Thank you......

    A scene in a movie, in which you see the actor (not talking) but you hear his voice, as though you could hear his thoughts.

    Or you might not see any people at all, or focus on any one or two particular people, but a landscape or city street, or a montage of scenes. The point is, the character is not speaking to anyone in the scene -- he's speaking only to the audience.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
