the eyeline

 

It’s important to highlight some of the most important things I am learning in post production –  reaction shots, complimentary angles, having someone who could montior continuity, and eyelines. 
It makes a huge difference in the edit – even if some of the shots aren’t framed perfectly (in the shot-reverse-shot kind of way), a matching eyeline creates a flow between cuts. And, as has been pointed out, a cut is a very disjointed and shocking action. It breaks. 

ImageAs much as matching angles are important, I feel that matching the eyelines are moreso. They work with the complimentary angles – but still, you could match up the eyelines in a jumpcut.
