The 180 degree rule is when you imagine a line going through each character in the conversation and only film from one side. This keeps the continuity as if we changed angles and sides with the camera then the audience may be confused. When filming we stayed on one side of the characters and this allowed us to keep the continuity running through the film. As you can see by this image we only filmed on the right hand side of the chair. We get the view of the door and both characters in the scene.
