In lesson, we learned about match cut and the 180 degree rule, which we used in creating storyboard using jelly babies as planning for a prelim of a short thriller footage. Match Cut and the 180 Degree Rule is important as it teaches you that the camera is the viewer, so you have to stay on one side because if you cross the 180 rule then you will be confusing the audience, this will be much help for when we film our final sequence thriller.
MATCH CUT- Transition between two shots in which an object or movement at the end of one shot closely resembles an object or movement at the beginning of the next shot.
THE 180 DEGREE RULE- The 180° rule is a basic guideline in film making that states that two characters (or other elements) 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.
