Technically Mayas made a mistake with the calendar and this is the “correct” year, in which the world ends, not 2012. But haha I don’t believe in it either.

What would be considered advanced directing?

4 Likes

This definition varies between different people, but for me a story has advanced directing when it:

  • uses spots for characters other than screen left/screen center/screen right
  • uses layers correctly so characters aren’t on top of each other when they aren’t supposed to
  • has overlays with certain layers so characters walk behind/in front of them
  • has people walk in correctly and not slide in
  • zooms centered well and not all janky, maybe within a certain time or instantly
  • overlays animated decently (rotating, sliding, fading, scaling, etc.)
  • transitions between scenes
  • use of props properly
  • tappable overlays if you’re really advanced
