Continuity task research

  1. 1. Continuity Task Research Beth Parry, Chloe Hill and Ellie Bacon
  2. 2. Match on Action: definition Match on action (or cutting on action) is an editing technique for continuity editing in which one shot cuts to another shot portraying the action of the subject in the first shot. This creates the impression of a sense of continuity, the action carrying through creates a visual bridge which draws the viewers attention away from slight cutting or continuity issues.
  3. 3. Match on Action - Examples The man in the suit is trying to get into the room that is being guarded. In the second shot the camera angle moves to in the room picking up his action as he tries to push past the doorman.
  4. 4. Match on Action: Our Use We are going to use this to link most of our movement, especially in the first scene which is leading up to the meeting. A specific example of this is when Ellie goes into the meeting as the first shot will be from outside the room and then the second shot will be a close up of her pulling the door handle down and then the final shot will be in the room showing her coming in.
  5. 5. Shot Reverse Shot – Definition Shot reverse shot is a continuity editing technique used in conversations or simply characters looking at each other or objects. A shot showing what the character is supposedly looking at (either a point of view or over the shoulder shot) is followed by a reverse angle shot of the character themselves looking at it or of the other character looking at them and then back to the first shot again.
  6. 6. Shot Reverse Shot - Examples In the first shot we see from the mans point of view, what he is looking at by an over the shoulder shot. We then see the reverse, where the angle goes to over the shoulder of the female showing the mans reaction. Then we go back to the first camera angle again.
  7. 7. Shot Reverse Shot – Our Use The main place we will use this shot is for the conversation in the meeting. Our shot will not be just 3 shots, it will be a continuous shot reverse shot using over the shoulder shots to see the other persons reaction to the conversation.
  8. 8. 180 Rule - Definition The 180 rule is a filming guideline that participants in a scene should have the same left right relationship to each other, with filming only taking place within the 180 angle in which this is maintained in a conversation. This allows the audience to have a greater sense of location in the scene in terms of what may be off screen in shots, for example in shot reverse shot.
  9. 9. 180 rule - Example We can see that the camera is on the same side of the people at all times, keeping the same left-right relationship. Also, the middle camera is directly in-between the 2 people keeping the view at only 180 degrees.
  10. 10. 180 rule – Our Use We will use this in the conversation at the meeting to compliment our shot reverse shot. We will do this by keeping the angle of the over shoulder shots so that the persons head and shoulder is at the same side of the camera to create a flowing scene.
