Match on action shot Match on action is when the action of the subject is followed through more than one camera shot/angle, this type of shot is used for the feel of continuity and is most commonly seen between dialogue (OTSS) or in a sports match.
Reverse Shot Reverse shot is also used for keeping the feel of continuity and to keep the flow of the shots. It is performed by switching between 2 or more subjects used along with the OTSS and the 180 degrees rule.
180 degrees rule. The 180° rule is a basic guideline that states that two characters (or other elements) in the same scene should always have the same left/right relationship to each other. If the camera passes over the imaginary axis connecting the two subjects, it is called crossing the line. The new shot, from the opposite side, is known as a reverse angle
Recording findings… We found the cameras tended to go out of focus very often and cause the shots to be very low quality, luckily for us, the majority of our camera angles will be still shots, enabling the camera to focus its self with easier than if we were to use them as moving shots.
Actors <ul><li>The actors will be Bret Newman… as Captain Jolly Roger </li></ul>… and myself (Reece Taylor), as Shipmate Mac Daddy With Yasmin making a guest appearance. Meaning Yasmin Wadsworth and Fay Sawyn will be doing most of the camera work for our shots, although we will all be taking turns, when filming each other whilst in a singular character shots. The Majority of the camera shots we use will most likely be OTSS, Long shots, Close ups & Mid-Shots because we are filming in a small area of which we can only do certain shots, we cant perform and aerial shot of the room we are in as we cannot acquire the right equipment, same scenario applies to other shots we wont use.
