Continuity editing presentation

  1. 1. Continuity edit Continuity edit helps make scene of the action, a from shot to shot using many different techniques. It means that everything flows in a consistent, sequential, smooth manner.
  2. 2. is a film technique where one character is shown looking at another character often off-screen, and then the other character is shown looking back at the first character. Since the characters are shown facing in opposite directions, the viewer assumes that they are looking at each other. It is a common technique used in many films/programmes Shot reverse shot
  3. 3. Establishing shot An establishing shot is usually the first shot of a new scene, designed to show the audience where the action is taking place. It is usually a very wide shot or extreme wide shot.
  4. 4. 180 degree rule The 180 degree rule is that the camera has to stay the same side as an imaginary line, the line is drawn perpendicular to the cameras view point. This makes the continuity of the film and is often used when two people are having a conversation in an establishing shot. This rule shouldn’t be broken as it can ruin the scene.
  5. 5. Matching on action Matching on action is an editing technique where one shot cuts to another portraying the action of the subject in the shot. This technique is used a lot, for example when there is a medium long shot of someone drinking a drink, it will then cut to the drink touching the persons lips as a close up.
  6. 6. Eye line match Eye line refers to the path looking eye and is similar to shot reverse shot . It is based on the audience wanting to view what the character on the screen is viewing, the camera starts on the character looking at something the audience cannot see, but then cuts to the object or person they are looking at.
