    I've always noticed these things.. I didn't know there's actually a job for it. I guess the movie I've been watching have the worst script supervisor or didn't actually hire one..

    4:13 - 4:35 : The lawyer opened the folder, and held it in his right hand in the same "reading" position. He couldn't have given it to Greg, and him also being able to open and read it normally, without having to turn the folder by 180 degrees.

    Admittedly, some of those rules may be broken on purpose. I remember attending a workshop once where we discussed an old Japanese movie where spacial continuity was seriously messed up and it created a strong sense of confusion and anxiety - exactly as the director intended and the movie was a masterpiece. So in the end you can do whatever you want as long as you know why and/or it works.

    What a cheesy, BS way to end the video! Just put the answers in the comments header. So, what, do we have to look through all the comments to see what was left out? Or watch the video over and over? I guess this is how Vanity Fair gets its views...
