MS (Mid Shot)
MCU (Midium Close Up)
CU (Close Up)

After we lent the different skill, it was time for the fun bit! :)
We were asked to film a shot scene based on the famous bag swap scene of Collateral
I really enjoyed this part! I realised just how many different shots are needed, even for just a short scene. We had to think of the continuity, and always left 5 seconds of filming before each shot so that it would edit together easily.
