Preliminary Task

The video created by me and Sasha, this video is a practice for us to show our understanding on editing.The video has varying shots: A two shot, close up, medium shot and a pan. During editing we added a shot reverse shot.The techniques used in the video were used to add more drama to the scene.The close up shots of the character taking the sweater from the other character, shows the disappointment and frustration of the character, as his gift isn’t appreciated.I have learned to not break the 180 degree rule, as it makes it easier for the viewers to understand the narrative of the scene.

I have also learned to not make continuity mistakes, that could throw off the audience.I used these rules to show the audience the drama happening in the scene, but also to make more sense.In Premier Pro I learned to use cutting tool, to edit clips and create shots such as the shot reverse shot.I used the shot reverse shot to create more tension between the characters in the scene.If I am to do this project again, I would make the actors act better to make it more authentic, and I would also make sure I add an establishing shot to the scene, as we were unable to have one.
