As a part of our media AS work, we are assigned to groups of 3/4 people in our class, completing the preliminary and main task.

The preliminary task was a short film of someone entering a room and interrogating another character, including only a couple of lines of dialogue.

When we were doing the preliminary task it taught us how to use three different techniques; the 180° degree rule, match on action and shot reverse shot.

Match -on-action: A continuity cut which unites two different views of the same action together at the same moment in the movement, making the clip flow and continue.

Shot/reverse shot: Any pair of shots edited in which the second shot reveals what is on the other side of the previous shot

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


Storyboard for our Preliminary Task

For our prelim task we decided that we were going to do a Police Officer interrogating an illegal immigrant, splitting the roles between us, with one person filming and the other two acting.
The storyboard above wasn't our final outcome as we were given a timelimit and if we included everything we planned, we would go over that limit.
