Preliminary Exercise


Today In Media Studies, we were given an exercise to try and complete as a small group which would involve our first bit of filming! The exercise was the following:

A continuity task involving filming and editing a character opening a door, crossing a room and sitting down in a chair opposite another character with whom he/she then exchange a few lines of dialogue.

This task must demonstrate:

  • match on action
  • shot/reverse shot
  • the 180° rule

I will be blogging every part of the process of making the film, and today in my group we also managed to work as a group to create a potential script for the situation. For an extra challenge, our teacher told our group that we must use the word “Humpty Dumpty” within our script… Great!

In my next blog, which should be posted soon – I will be including the script!
