Preliminary Continuity Task- Present Face

I used the following camera techniques:

  • Close Up
  • Two Shot
  • Medium Long Shot
  • Pans
  • Over Shoulder Shot
  • Shot Reverse Shot
  • Reaction Shot

These variety of shot types are for dramatic fact in the video. It is to make the clip more interesting as it would be extremely tedious if each shot was the same. I found that when I came to the final product I had not used a large enough range of shots which really restricted the quality of the video. I used a closeup to highlight the facial expression of Lucy as it was crucial to show her frustration.

I have learnt to use the following continuity editing rules:

  • The 180 Degree Rule
  • The Establishing Shot
  • The Match on Action
  • Shot Reverse Shot
  • Re-Establishing Shot

These rules were vital to the success of the shot. Using the point and shoot cameras were really effective and easy to use, these are also much simpler to film than the DSLR which makes it much more straightforward.

If I would do this task again I would have put effects onto the video in PremierPro. This would have made it look more professional and have an overall higher quality video. Overall I believe I did not apply myself to this task fully and if I had fully applied myself it would have been a lot better.
