Example text

Shot 1K is a slow boom down showing Asteroth sitting alone in the booth. The vertical move parallels the ending shot, providing nice bookends to the scene and, since this is a story about heaven and hell, showing the scene moving down toward the earth is another reference to the broader theme. Perhaps most importantly (though very subtly), it signifies Ann's descent from heaven, which is really the opening event of the scene. With the right sound design, that concept could be enhanced or downplayed.

The closer the geometry of the two shots is, the gentler their juxtaposition. The other important reason for shot matching involves the content. When you deliberately cut a clean single against a dirty one, or a slightly wider shot of one person with a closer shot of the other, it changes the relationship between the characters. This can be a great tool when used deliberately, but otherwise, it is an unwanted distraction. You can hope that your production crew understood the importance of this, and designed all their shots in matching pairs, but it is still up to you to use them.

Since this is exactly what the audience is doing (wondering what he's going to do), it's a perfect choice for the next edit. 5. Set an In and Out point around Ann's look (In: 01:15:51:15, Out: 54:15). 6. In the sequence, watch the 1G-1 shot, and make a determination about how long you should let it play before cutting to Ann's reaction. Technically, there's no right or wrong answer, but the more accurately you can judge your typical viewer's attention span, the better an editor you will be. Of course, this time will vary depending on the audience you are serving.
