Transcript

  • 1. Preliminary exercise • Brief: • Film and edit a character opening a door, crossing a room and sitting down in a chair opposite another character, with whom s/he exchanges a couple of lines of dialogue. This task should demonstrate: match on action, shot/reverse shot and the 180° rule.
  • 2. Match on action • Also known as ‘Cutting on Action’. • Matching the action from one shot to the next to prevent the audience being distracted by the shot transition.
  • 3. Shot / reverse shot • Technique to show two or more characters talking to each other. • Characters appear to be looking in opposite directions, leading audience to believe they are talking to each other. • What is ‘eye line match’?
  • 4. 180° DEGREE RULE • ‘Crossing the Line’ • Characters should always stay on the same side relative to each other to help the audience understand movement offscreen. Otherwise the audience is confused!
