Masterclass: The 180 degree rule and how to use it well in filmmaking



Ever been perplexed by the theory of 'crossing the line' (or the 180 degree rule as some prefer to think of it?

In this video I go through the 180-degree rule in film for one person, two-person, three-person and four or more person-shots. How do you use it effectively, and how do you match eye-lines? This video has it all.
