Prelim Continuity Task


This is my short video of someone receiving a present, we did this task just for us to gain some more knowledge on how to film and edit, this was in preparation for our music videos. Doing this task I learnt a lot of things to do with the editing and filming process.

Within filming i learnt:

  • Every shot needs to be steady, unless done so on purpose
  • Film shots at least 3 times just incase one isn’t good
  • Do not move the actors to a new location half way through a sequence and not re-do some shots as this means you’re making a continuity error.

Within editing i learnt:

  • Eye line matches only work if the shots are good
  • Do not break the 180 degree rule as when it comes to edit this can be a pain
