Relationship between shots- Temporal-relationship in time(before, after, time in between) Spacial- relationship in setting/place(same space, different space, same shot) Graphic- colors, brightness, shape, changes in the visual element Rhythmic- relations between rhythm and temporality.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
