180 degree
       rule
 Loran, Hannah & Jacob
Definition
 The 180 degree rule is a basic
 guideline that states that 2
 characters in the same scene
 should always have the same
 left/right relationship to each
 other. If the camera passes over
 the imaginary axis connecting
 the two subjects, it is called
 crossing the line. The new shot,
 from the opposite side, is known
 as a reverse angle.
Examples
   In the example of an action scene, such as a
    car chase, if a vehicle leaves the right side of
    the frame in one shot, it should enter from the
    left side of the frame in the next shot. Leaving
    from the right and entering from the right will
    create a sense of disorientation.

   The rule is not always obeyed. Sometimes a
    filmmaker will purposely break the line of
    action in order to create disorientation.
    Stanley Kubrick was known to do this, an
    example being the bathroom scene in The
    Shining.
