In the preliminary task we used shot reaction/reverse in the conversation between Ed and Lewis. This is when you shoot back and forth between two characters so that when they speak the audience will see who is speaking. We tried to keep the continuity by keeping the other character in the view in every shot so that you could see the conversation is still going on between the two. Also we used the rule of thirds to separate the characters and be more appealing to the viewer’s eye. In the first image we see Lewis’ face and the back of Ed’s head. This shows that Lewis is the one talking and the audience can see what he has to say and the expression on his face. The second image shows Ed’s face and the back of Lewis’ head so the camera angle changes depending on who is talking. The camera flicks back and forth between them.
