Match Cut Technique (180 degree rule)

Understanding match cut was pretty easy but is quite challenging at the same time because you have to remember the 180 degree rule, and if you cross that it will not count as a match cut 180 rule any more.

You must stay on the same side for every shot to not confuse the audience, Here is my image that i made simply explaining the rule:

"A character opens a door, walks into a room, sits down opposite another character and they share a few lines of dialogue" 

Here is a video showing and explaining how to use the 180 degree rule

When researching i also found out about other shots such as Tracking shot, Wide angle shot and Dolly shot:

Overall we got to use this for our final primarily shot and jelly baby animatic story board
