Video description
Film continuity eing errors and movie mistakes happen in big and small films. But do they matter?

Continuity eing is the process, in film and video creation, of combining more-or-less related shots, or different components cut from a single shot, into a sequence so as to direct the viewer's attention to a pre-existing consistency of story across both time and physical location.

Still think continuity matters? Test your awareness here:

Thank you to Dr. Karen Pearlman for pointing me to the research of Timothy J. Smith:
