Description
"Continuity is a flow in the succession of images that allows the viewer to suspend disbelief. Lack of Continuity distracts and annoys.”
This beginner workshop will give you an overview of the importance of keeping Continuityin film/video production through discussion of the various types of continuity to look out for and examples of continuity errors (and sometimes, possible workarounds), and short dramatic exercise to experience how it works during production as well as pre- and post-production.
...because if you don’t pay attention to Continuity, your work may end up, at worst, unusable, and at least, unbelievable.
