  1. 1. Editing ConceptsThe 180° rule is a basic guideline in film making that states that twocharacters (or other elements) in the same scene should always havethe same left/right relationship to each otherExample: An example is that in a car chase scene, if the car istravelling from right to left, the next shot must also be shot from the rightto left.
  2. 2. Eye Line is a cut between two shots that creates the illusion of thecharacter (in the first shot) and looking at an object (in the second shot).Here is an example of the Eye Line technique used. This how bothcharacters are staring into each other whilst the camera angle is at adifferent angle.Shot reversed shot is when a cut between two shots that creates theillusion of the character (in the first shot) and looking at an object (in thesecond shot). This example shows how one the camera isfocused on one character then focused on another then back to the first.
  3. 3. Cross cutting is when two shots that creates the illusion of thecharacter (in the first shot) and looking at an object (in the second shot).PoV (Point of view)A form of eye-line matching that involves a series of three separate shots-ashot of a character looking off screen, a point-of-view shot of what thecharacter sees, and a reaction shot of the character as he or she reacts to thething that has been seen.
  4. 4. ContinuityContinuity editing is the predominant style of editing in narrative cinema andtelevision. The purpose of continuity editing is to smooth over the inherentdiscontinuity of the editing process and to establish a logical coherencebetween shots.Match on ActionEither an action commenced in shot A is completed in shot B, or an action inshot A is mirrored by an action in shot B
  5. 5. MontageThe process or technique of selecting, editing, and piecing together separatesections of film to form a continuous whole.
