Student walks in and sits at the table and stares at the Man who is typing.
Drug Dealer looks up from laptop then continues typing.
Student (1st actor): Do you have it?

Reflection on the Continuity Task
When doing the continuity task I learnt that it is very important to have each shot thoroughly thought out and checked (or walked through) on location before any actors are with you to make sure that any problems that would arise when it comes to the filming would be ironed out meaning that fewer changes would have to be made on set and therefore would not prevent the filming from running as smoothly as possible . However I feel that the whole process went well, I think that the workload was well shared out between me and the other person in my pair meaning that in the end we worked efficiently. However I do feel that we left the actual filming of the task too late making the editing a rush but even still we managed to get everything done on time and to a standard that I am happy with.
