hey! Nice idea and well done. I think it would be even better with a VO track explaining some of the techniques. For instance, explain that with the 180 degree rule, the idea is to stay on one side of the line so as not to reverse screen direction. And for the low angle shot, maybe give an example of what it might say to the viewer when this technique is employed. What does that shot from Pulp Fiction do (or Citizen Cane for that matter)? Very cool idea though. I will point people from our TSL forum here.
