Continuity Editing – The Basics

Below is a good example of continuity editing in the film Silence of the Lambs.

Continuity shots from the clip:

-Match on action 4:10

Shot reverse shot  1:13

Establishing shot 2:07

For the preliminary task, it is important to be able to create continuity in our piece, as it would take longer to produce and breaks the immersion the audience has whilst watching.
