  2. 2. You What?<br />Basic guidline of filmmaking<br />Two characters or element should have the same right/left relationship to each other.<br />The reverse angle:<br />A shot from the opposite side.

  3. 3. Explaination <br />Camera cuts from green to red arc.<br /> characters switch place on the screen<br />
  4. 4. This can be very confusing for the viewer.<br />When two people face each other they hould always still face that same side of the screen.<br />Example;<br /> Soldier 1 <br /> Soldier 2<br />
  5. 5. Soldier 1<br />Soldier 2<br />Facing the left<br />This is the correct way, as they are looking opposite ways in each shot.<br />
  6. 6. Soldier 1<br />Soldier 2<br />Facing the left<br />This is the incorrect way, as they are looking the same ways in each shot. This confuses the viewer, as you cannot tell that they are having a conversation.<br />
