• We came up with a medley of rough ideas to work with, and decided on using a few merged ideas.• We decided upon a small conversation between characters, about a student’s incomplete work, which leads to conflict between the characters.
• What is it?• The 180 degree rule is a basic guideline which states that two characters or other elements within the same scene must always have the same left/right relationship to each other.• The rule allows the audience to connect visually with unseen movement that is happening around and behind the immediate subject.• Often in professional productions, applying the 180° rule is an essential element for continuity editing.• The rule is normally used to avoid disorientating the audience with shifting the shot from one character to another using cutaways.
• We considered using the 180° rule whilst filming the characters in our scene are having a conversation at a desk.• During the conversation the camera will be placed on the right hand side of the table, and will remain within a 180 degree radius.• By doing this, the character on the right hand side remains on the right and the character on the left stays on the left side of the shot.
• By following the 180 degree rule the character on the left hand side will stay on the left. • The camera remains on this side of the scene within 180 degrees so that the audience are not disorientated. MiddleLeft. Middle • Although the camera changes position, due to the 180 degree rule the characters remain in the same position and on the same side of the Right Left. Right shot.
• Match on action is editing, where it cuts from one shot to another shot that matches the first shots action.• It is used to show the continuation of actions. E.g.:• http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_RjfGD1R TW8&feature=related
