Long shot, over the shoulder from Jack’s perspective. It shows most of the location, but also serves to show the action, my character entering the room.Over the shoulder close up, from my perspective,showing the conversation between the two characters.It is also one of the first shots of our 180 degree rulebeing established, with the camera being one the rightside of me and the left side of Jack. Another over the shoulder shot, but from Jack’s perspective, our use of the shot reverse shot, which continues through most of the task.
A mid shot, placed on the, to show Jack picking up the case. We broke the 180 degree rule for this one shot, as we thought it would be a better way to film this shot, and the jarring nature of breaking the 180 rule would draw attention to this particular action.This is an mid shot of the case being pushedforward, creating an interesting shot asthe case moves across the frame. This is an insert of the case being opened, the first shot of the match on action we used in this clip.
This is a mid shot of Jack opening the case properly and the second shot, that completes our match on action. We made an effort to never show the contents of the case, keeping an enigma in our task, one of the thriller genre conventions.A long shot from behind me, which againBreaks the 180 degree rule, but creates amore interesting shot composition with bothcharacters confined to the middle and leftmostthirds and creates visual interest through that. The final shot of the task, again breaking the 180 degree rule, however, as this is the end of the conversation between the two characters it is used to show me getting up from a different angle than had been previously used.
