Preliminary Task/ Script

Brief: Continuity task involving filming and editing a character opening a door, crossing a room and sitting down in a chair opposite another character, with whom she then exchanges a couple of lines of dialogue.This task should demonstrate match on action, shot/reverse shot and the 180-degree rule.

A character walks through a door to come across another character who is already seated. This preliminary task consists of a conversation between two people about how one was looking for the other character in order to recieve an important parcel. The parcel comes across as mysterious and the object inside the parcel is soon discovered.

Character one walks down the corridor towards the meeting room, placing a hand on the handle and opens the door. On the other side of the door, another character is seated.

CHARACTER 1: Where have you been?

CHARACTER 2:(puzzled expression) What do you mean?

CHARACTER 1: I have been looking for you for ages!

CHARACTER 2: Oh I see, I apologize. I was working on ''the thing.''

CHARACTER 1: ''The thing'' is of great importance, I understand.

CHARACTER 2: I think you should leave now.

Character 1 picks up the envelope and swiftly departs. Once the character is outside, they turn the parcel over where it says 'DO NOT OPEN' and opens it to reveal a cookie. Character 1 looks surprised and begins to eat the cookie.

Character 2 slides a brown parcel across the table. The parcel has a ''?'' mark on it. Character 2 gives a knowing look.
