Making a New Sword

Starting in on another fantasy series, The Sacred Blacksmith is already unique for a couple of reasons. From my The Sacred Blacksmith - Cecilyperspective, this is a good looking series. The fight scenes in particular had an extra mark of distinction by paying a bit of attention to other parts of the body beyond just the clashing of swords. But moving past that, one is left with a really odd question of what exactly the staff was trying to accomplish with the idea of making 90% of their character shots a close up on someone's face.

It doesn't matter how far you go into the series, every few seconds the series is cutting to look at a characters face; over and over again. Occasionally the series will break it up with a wide frame shot or even a three quarter body shot but a close up will always be only a few seconds away.
