The 180 Degree Rule in Film ►► http://bit.ly/180-Degree-Rule-in-Film
The 180 degree line is a rule used in filmmaking that helps you maintain a constant orientation during your scenes. That said, there are ways you can break the 180 degree rule, and ways that you can bend the 180 degree rule.
Our video breaks down how to follow the 180 degree rule, how to break the 180 degree rule, and bend the 180 degree rule to achieve maximum effectiveness from your scene.
Breaking the 180 degree rule can also be called crossing the line or jumping the line. The line you draw connects two actors in a scene, and once you’ve established your camera placement on one side of the line, you have now decided which 180 degrees you will have to place your subsequent camera setups.
You do this so that your viewer can keep their orientation, and avoid spatial confusion.
But what if you break the line?
We show specific examples of directors and films that follow the 180 degree rule, break the 180 degree rule, and bend the 180 degree rule so that you understand perfectly the different effects each has on a viewer.
When you finish this video, you will understand why you need to follow the 180 degree rule in most situations, and know exactly when you should break it or bend it.
The end result: You will understand the 180 degree rule better than you did before - and how to command your visuals.
