This instructional video explains the basic steps and applications of the 180-degree rule in film making with shot by shot examples. Using this rule will keep your audience oriented to the movement of the on-screen character. For example, if two characters are facing each other, using the 180-degree rule keeps characters grounded on a particular side of the screen or frame, and keeps them looking at one another when only one character is on-screen. Remember this while filming interviews to keep the interviewer and interviewee facing each other. This video breaks down how to follow the 180-degree rule, and how to bend or break it to achieve maximum effectiveness from your scene.
