The Four Rules

  1. 1. • Usually two people sitting across from each other.• They should always have the same left and right relationship to each other. • There is an invisible axis between the two people which cannot be crossed. • If the line is crossed, the camera movement must be shown so the left and right relationship stays the same.
  2. 2. • A type of edit where you cut back and forth between footage which has been shot simultaneously.• It is usually used for filming conversations and is important to observe the 180 degree rule.
  3. 3. • Lining up shots so it appears continuous – people, objects and location all appear the same in all shots.• Makes the shots flow.
  4. 4. • When you include a shot that isn’t in the usual action to tell the audience something about the storyline – like a narrative clue.
