Shooting in the round refers to a style in cinematography where you break the 180 degree rule and film the actors from all sides.

During TV show panel discussions, shooting in the round can help the guests feel like all the panelists are equal and create a feeling of greater intimacy.[1]

The name of the style is originally brought from the theater, called Theater in the round.
