Animatic, Match cut and 180° Rule

As aprt of our media course we were told to create an Animatic story board using jelly babies as a preliminary exercise. This was done in order to have an idea about how our film will turn out. So this was like a play around to get a feel of using the camera's and actually following our jelly babies story board.
Furthermore, we were then taught the 180° Rule and what Match-cut was.

  • 180° rule is kike a guideline in film. This makes the states that two characters (or other elements) in the same scene should always have the same left/right relationship to each other. If the camera passes over the imaginary axis connecting the two subjects, the term 'crossing the line' is used. Filming a scene in the opposite side is known as a reverse angle.

  • A match cut is used to create a link between two pieces of action, which are actually related to each other. In the end result you are left with a good shot, which is edited good and leaves your two pieces flowing.
