Evaluation continued- Examples

Examples of 180 degree rule, Shot reverse shot and Match on action.

Shot Reverse Shot
This is an example of the shot reverse shot which is a technique where one character is shown looking towards another character and then the other character is shown looking back at the first character. The viewer would now assume that they are looking at each other.

180 Degree Rule
 This is an example of the 180 degree rule showing two characters in the same scene which should always have the same left/right relationship to each other. If the camera passes over the imaginary axis connecting the two subjects it will confuse the viewing audience.

Match on Action
This is an example of the match on action shot. This is a shot which cuts from one shot to another that matches the action and pace of the first shot to create an impression of continuity. This also creates a visual bridge which can disguise the cut from one to the other
