Re: Fan Filmmaker's Primer

^^^Right. You need to figure out where everything is so you can establish eyelines and maintain directional continuity.

Interestingly, I noticed that Exeter broke its own directional continuity in Act 3 for one shot (the ship consistently travels screen left, but in one shot it's heading screen right). I looked at the shot in question and it's actually correct, but in editing someone flopped it...oops.
