  • 1. Shot reverse Shot List as manytransitions as they can think of that would be used in a TV 180 degreedramaMatch on actionFade

2. We are going to watchthe first 15 minutes ofSex Traffic (2004) A powerful two-partdrama about two youngMoldovan sisterskidnapped andtrafficked throughEurope to the dark sideof London, betrayed bypimps and police, andfighting for their lives. Watch now on 4oD 3. Transition Seen in Sex Traffic Why the transition was used in this dramaShot reverse shotIt shows a conversation between two people.CutTwo separate scenes changed quickly. It shows what other characters are doing at the time in a different place.Match on actionShows two perspectives and angles of someone for example a shot of someone opening a door and the other one of them walking through to the other room. 4. List the all of the editing devicesthat you can think of 5. Cutting The simple change from oneshot/scene to another Cross Cutting - Editing that alternates shotsof two or more lines of action occurring indifferent places, usually simultaneously. Thetwo actions are therefore linked, associatingthe characters from both lines of action. 6. We have studied this before for yourpreliminary task. This is used in conversation to move from onecharacter to another and back again. 7. Again we have studied this before This is where the camera shoots onecontinuous piece of action and the editswitches from one perspective to another. 8. A cut obeying the axis of action principle, in which the first shot shows a person off in onedirection and the second shows a nearby space containing what he or she sees. If theperson looks left, the following shot should imply that the looker is offscreen right. Seethe example below -First we see her looking... then we see what she looks at.As her interest grows, the eyeline match (that is the connection between looker andlooked) is stressed with matching close-ups of her face and Icaruss falling into the oceanin the painting. Again, this implies that she is looking directly at Icaruss body. 9. First we see her looking...then we see what she looks at. As her interest grows, the eyeline match (that is theconnection between lookerand looked) is stressedwith matching close-ups ofher face and the section of the painting she isinterested in 10. With pace you are looking for how long orshort the time between each edit is. If we are watching a car chase we would expectthe time to be short between each edit. A emotional drama may have much longerbetween each of its cuts You can also think about rhythem. Have theedits been timed to key moments or the beatof the piece of music behind the scene? 11.
