The Preliminary Task

Preliminary exercise: Continuity task involving filming and editing a character opening a door, crossing a room and sitting down in a chair opposite another character, with whom she/he then exchanges a couple of lines of dialogue.
This task should demonstrate match on action, shot/reverse shot and the 180-degree rule.

My time line

The software i used for editing the clip was Final cut. In final cut i was able to cut the recorded clips to the length i need it to be.

This is my timeline in final cut, this shows where all the clips are placed as well as the audio.

For the title i used live type. I was able to changed the effects on the letters and then import it to Final cut.
For planning we wrote a short script and wrote all the shots we could use for the script.
We had a story board explaining what would happen in each shot.
When filming we took videos of the same action in many angles. This is to add prospective and suspense when being watched. While filming we used a light reflector so we can see the characters properly, we also used a dolly when filming when the camera was moving.
