This video was made at the beginning of the year and I wanted to experiment with it. I filmed a simple conversation and focused on continuity, match-on-action shots, a conversation and basic framing.
Match on action is a very simple but essential tenchique, where the perspective of the camera changes during a scene and the scene continues to flow. It is integral to the overall continuity of a film. Which is why I practiced in my preliminary.
Conversation using 180 Rule
What I learnt?
I learned that continuity is integral to the overall quality of a finished product. It's what makes something look amateur if executed poorly. That is why this preliminary task was very important. Also, match on action shots help the audience stay engaged with a piece, as it helps the final product flow more. It ensures a certain level of fluidity, which is why practice is so important.

I have had trouble with my Blogger. After I had nearly completed all of my posts, they somehow got deleted. Over 30 posts deleted and I tried recovering them, but Google was unable to do so. I have since tried to redo all the posts, whilst recovering from an appendectomy.
