A) Duration of spatial organization-  the director and editor decides the time a. Rule- you start showing when the content or intensity curve starts or begins to  rise; when important assimilation occurs; then you stop when the information is  given, at the peak (the peak at which the audience has assimilated most of the  information) i. You can break from this rule like Hitchcock by starting after information is  being given or before it is all given b. Pace/tempo/timing/duration i. Space and time are RECIPROCAL; when you do something to space it  affects time and if you do something with time affects space. c. The shot, scene, and sequence as temporal units i. The  shot - the basic temporal unit; the beginning of the spatial  organization to the end of spatial organization; most run 1-10 seconds ii. A series of spatial organizations (shot)- we have the second basic  temporal unit-the  scene-   1. shots make scenes  iii. A series of scene that provide a decided movement/thrust and we know  the movie will move into another direction we have the  sequence 1. scenes make sequence  d. The long take- some can run from 8-10 minutes B) Relation between shots a. Movement, pace, rhythm i. When you cut from one shot to the other shot you create movement ii. 3 rd  type of movement from frame to frame to frame (1 st  is actors/set  moving (within the frame), 2 nd  is camera moving (outside the frame) iii. Quick pace or slow pace (demonstrates space/time reciprocal)

iv. Rhythm- we experience rhythm inside and outside of ourself (polyrhymic);  1. Beats that are repeated. A pattern of sequential beats b. Cutting principles i. They want to stitch shots together because: 1. Creates movement and thrust 2. Gives objects a relationship based on space and time 3. Has to do with theme (???) ii. Spatial contiguity and temporal continuity 1. 180 degree system a. If you want to make the shots connect, you have to keep  your camera on the same side of the 180 degree line. You  cannot cross the line or the shots wont connect
