I’m looking at the 180 rule in the good the bad and the ugly. They execute the rule really well! As you can see you know where each character is looking and who they are looking at. The way this is shot makes you feel like you’re watching the shootout in person. It also makes you follow the story easier. If they had gone over the 180 rule it would look odd and out of place. It lets you follow each persons eye line to establish who is looking at who.

    I’m chuffed with this, Kayla. Using screenshots and making specific reference to them is a really strong way of demonstrating your ideas.
