Laurie Bick:

The Camera placement is very very weird.

Howard Cameron:

Broke the 180 degree camera rule.
The eyebrows are very poppy, they do not transition well.

Brian W.:

My gosh, that's confusing.

TJ Askew:

Remember, the characters must say on the same side of the screen, the character on the right must remain on the right. When they switch sides like that, especially so quickly, the audience loses track of who's who.

Raphael Blanchet:

Be mindful of screen direction when cutting between characters talking. Because both characters appear in the same exact location in each cut it becomes confusing who is who, especially with a similar rig. Look into the concept of the 180 degree rule.


Need a lots of observations..


you need to keep characters to their own side of the frame. So character A only ever takes up the left side and Character B only ever takes up the right side. It's not a definitive rule but it really helps the viewer discern which is which.

Carolyn Merklein:

this kind of does the bare minimum for acting, but it does it alright. the greatest sticking point is where he rased his hand for "are you up to something" - we don't need to see that change and it feels like when the camera isn't on the characters they stop having life in them.

Thibault Bouteldja:

careful to your reverse angle, you can't keep the exact camera position, the spectator can't read the scene and the space !


180º rule
