Movie Mistakes: When does Film Continuity REALLY Matter?

  • Film continuity editing errors and movie mistakes happen in big and small films. But do they matter?
    Continuity editing 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: ru-clip.com/video/ubNF9QNEQLA/видео.html

    Thank you very much ! I worked with so many persons who were obsessed with continuity, as if the only thing they wanted was making a flawless but commonplace story. Without risk there is no chance to make the difference...

    I would say that music videos break the rules of continuity editing by flashing many different wardrobe ensembles throughout the sequence. Take any popular music video for example and you'll see the singers and dancers magically switch clothing, automatically.

    Couldn't agree more. We have become programmed by youtube channels clickbaiting for views that continuity errors make the entire movie fail; eg, "Everything Wrong With...,"
    Most of these errors are never noticed when watching the film for the first time and never detract from the film.
    However, since you showed examples of 'Jurassic Park,' what I noticed, when watching the film for the first time, in the theatre, was "Getting out the Jeep scene," showing a flat expanse, vs a cliff when the TRex attacks and tosses the Jeep/Ford Explorer over the side/kids crawl out in trees. This was a change made after they had shot that first scene & Spielberg did not want to reshoot it. Even for something as big as this, it still just momentary, and then the movie pulls you back in.
    Also, the term you were looking for, eye attention on screen (or mouse locations on a computer screen), is "heat mapping."
    Love this discussion, look forward to more videos.

    if the filmmaker is in the shot, it pulls the audience member out of the film, so I disagree with the idea that continuity rarely matters.

    NO SPOILERS: I just wanted to add: Shutter island's phantom glass stems from the fact that we shift between the point of views of the protagonist and the lady. Water is symbolic to the main character which he attempts to suppress, thus we don't see the water from his point of view, only the lady's.

  • Mitchell Reid

    The shutter island one was deliberate. The protagonist is afraid of water due to his past, therefore he doesn't see water in his hallucination

    I have always thought of continuity errors as the things that take away from the story due to errors on set or in the plot. Things like Hermione being able to distract a werewolf. A lot of things pointed out I did not notice until it was pointed out. I have caught these errors after rewatching movies several times. For the average viewer no it’s not important and it’s not noticeable and so long as it doesn’t ruin the scene or pace of the film it’s not important. The jacket is not important cuz we are watching this guy cross the street with his kid and secretly hoping a bus doesn’t come out of nowhere,the gas tank is not important cuz we are thinking about the fight, the crew member in the back is not important cuz we’re looking at Jack. Anal retentives and cherry pickers are likely hugely impacted by this and tend be a very vocal over their perfectionist woes.

    What dumbass shoots a scene where the camera man has to stand in front of a mirror? That seems really easy to avoid. The ones you showed in better movies were unnoticeable and also hard to avoid, but the ones in the movie you worked on were rookie mistakes.

    I think, continuity errors are not important most times, but sometimes they can be annoying. For example in Terminator, when the car crashed into the police office. You can see the light from the car shining into the office, but when the car hits the front the headlights are off. I just thought: what happens there?

    The crew member on "Pirates..", the hand on the velociraptor or the air bottles on "Gladiator" are NOT "continuity errors", check you facts before making a video about the subject. They shouldn't be seen, they are mistakes, but not continuity errors.

  • demovidtest
    demovidtest 26 дней назад

    This is not a good topic - the essence of editing is about "continuity" across all the cuts within a film. Continuity is all about how much you can get away with in service of telling the story. NOTHING in film is edited continuously unless you're editing multicam footage in sequence from the same take. Scripty's job is meant to minimize these problems an editor would face - but ultimately, if people are noticing these things and it's ruining the movie for them, the bigger problem is with the film in general, not a tiny continuity error that the audience didn't buy.

    Great video for filmmaking! I often stated that if you're caught up in the emotion of the scene you likely won't notice or care. Glad there's good examples here to back that up. My favorite example is in "When Harry Met Sally", when Harry and Sally are fighting outside the building after they ran into his ex-wife. On the cuts back and forth, Meg Ryan has crossed arms and then uncrossed arms - through several cuts. When I've pointed this out to people, they never noticed. Because the performance are THAT good!

    I have a friend that is addicted to CinemaSins, and considers continuity just as major as the script. Here's an exert from his Halloween (1978) review.
    "The film is also hindered by being filmed in California (palm trees. In Illinois. In October) which could break the reality of the film"
    That one nitpick took the film took the film from a 10 to an 8 in his eyes! We don't even live in America, he has no idea what the geography of palm trees are like there!

    Continuity in the cutting room is made immensely easier if you have a script supervisor doing their job on the day (or days) of the shoot, maintaining proper wardrobe from shot to shot, props and prop placement etc.
    I have to admit you're correct though if the scene is engaging enough you don't notice, and I find the people that notice the less obvious stuff are the type of person who probably doesn't engage with films much and tends to chat a lot while watching.

    • Harry Eaton
      Harry Eaton Месяц назад

      The one in Terminator 2 also makes a bit of sense, they probably didn't have enough budget (or legal permissions for that matter) to fly a chopper around with a damaged (or fake damaged) cockpit window, so while they can do CGI for the breaking into the cockpit shot, the rest of the flying is just going to be whatever good shots they can get with the limited rent time of the chopper and stunt pilot. Same with the Commando yellow Porshe, it's easy to have a damaged prop that the characters get into but for the actual driving scene they didn't want to beat up a perfectly good expensive car.

    • Harry Eaton
      Harry Eaton Месяц назад

      Probably the best mix is to have the director working on emotion and framing, and the script supervisor working on reducing continuity issues so the director doesn't have to worry about it.

    I'm gonna tell you right now, you can give no fucks about continuity all day long but as soon as I spot only ONE continuity mistake it takes out the entire magic of the movie. Even if you haven't spotted the cameraman the first time but only after it was pointed out, I'm sure you have seen it the second time in the living room without anyone talking about it. It was even worse than. Once the grand illusion is broken, the entire card house falls apart. Failed continuity doesn't matter for as long as it isn't noticed.
    Personally, I am very quick to spot things that are out of place in terms of continuity. There are things that I miss, of course, I am not a robot but things like the jacket are easy for me to spot. If a good story sucks you in, bad continuity spits you right out. One continuity mistake will destroy the next 15 to 20 minutes of the movie for me.
    I think as a filmmaker it should be in your interest as much not to show the camera as it is to tell an emotional story. As an editor your job is it to take care of not showing the camera. As an script supervisor your job it is to not have the editor have to cut out the camera man.

    The same science that explains why most continuity doesn't matter also explains why ometimes it does. I saw the cameraman in th mirror, because we were looking at the characters from the back, and human brains are wired to detect people around them. The presence of the cameraman takes me out of the moment and out of whatever emotion I'm supposed to be feeling. Likewise, the train passing through was different at the start and it was notceable because both trains show up as the primary focus of a shot (there were no faces for me to look at). But I didn't notice the jacket for the same reason.

    the shutter island cup of water is because Teddy (andrew) has an aversion to water and blocks it out. he found his kids dead in water so its become a traumatic thing his mind blocks out. that is his POV shot with no cup in the hand then the over the shoulder is from someone else (the guard) showing the cup. not a mistake

    Seeing the cameraman in a reflection is not a continuity error. It is a shooting error. The former is about continuity between shots, not errors withing each shot.

    lot's of these type of errors.. I don't catch... the things that trip me up in films are bad lighting.
    horrible blue or green screen, eye lines in digital effects films... shimmering around composites. The star wars head bang... I heard that ... but never noticed it as it was in the background.. dynamic prop failures in things like car flips.. I'll give them a pass on that. Not killing your actors and stunt people is more important and making sure a gas bomb remains covered in a shot. these type of things can usually be fixed in post with digital brushing.

    The first train had ads all over it. the second train none. Obvious. The man is standing right in front of the crossing lights and would not be able to step forward to cross. This foreshortening attempted to accommodate the need to get the flashing lights on the other side of the tracks in the shot while the train approaches. Poor choice for the sake of aesthetics. The toddler is holding a slurpy drink so then we cut to the obvious handheld follow shot where dad is wearing his denim jacket, and the toddler no longer has the drink. Big oops. And just as bad, the toddler now has his little arm around the outside of dad as they cross in the next edit instead of inside dad holding the drink as in the first shot of them.
    As unconscious in inconsequential as all of these visual continuity errors may seem, they all take away from our ability to relate to the character, to believe that the actor is fully aware of the intention that he is trying to show, and that the director understands why crossing the tracks is an important visual symbol for the psychology of the scene. Everything is motion pictures is deliberate. It reveals everything, including the unintended loss of meaning and purpose. That is why even microbudget films have a script supervisor. Thanks to filmmaking tech in the hands of everyone, we can more readily see these errors, understand their significance, and appreciate really good film.

    In my view, they don't matter if I don't notice them my first time watching without them being pointed out. However, if I notice them, then I can get pulled out.
    Of course, with modern effects work, we can have our cake and eat it too. Crew member in the background of the shot? Erase them. Character holding the wrong prop? Magic in the correct one. Helicopters missing in one shot, add them back in. Of course, if the budget choice comes down to "make the entire film better" and "remove that reflection of the cameraman," then always spend your money on making the film itself better rather than fixing tiny mistakes.

    What actually bothered me in the first scene was the missing cup. The reason is that it caught my eye, seeing the child holding it (or rather the straw) and then it disappeared. That was what really threw me off. I actually have a theorie why I didn't notice the jackett:
    We start off with seeing his button up shirt, then we cut to seeing his shirt and his jackett and then we go back to seeing only his jackett. So in the subconscious short term memory, there actually is no continuity error, since we still see his shirt when the jackett is introduced, and once it is there, it doesn't call attention to it when it appears in the next shot. There still is a chance it will catch a viewers eye though.
    When you asked wether we should blame those mistakes on the script supervisors, you implied a no, but my answer is ABSLOTULEY FUCKING YES! It's their job after all. Blame it on the editors? Not so much. As you said, the editors job is to make the scene work emotionally and story wise. But this error should be prevented before it is shot.
    I think the more attention a continuity error draws to it (i.e. if it's in the foreground or it affects the performace) the director should put his focus on it, because the more obvious it is, the more people will be thrown off by it, the less the scene works.
    So in the scene where this guy carries his baby down the stairs, the camera man is not seen long enough to be noticed as a camera man, but the spacial awareness is still completeley trashed, because the mirror doesn't make sense. It is showing a wrong picture of the house, since in the world of the movie no camera man exists. And I caught that imidiatly, without actually noticing the camera man. On a low budget movie it doesn't matter that much, as I don't expect a perfect movie from the beginning, so anything that throws me off just a little will be discarded by me imidiatly.
    So your audiance doesn't seem to care that much about those errors, which is good. Or bad. Well, it doesn't really matter.But just because some professional sais he doesn't care, doesn't mean us ordinary people aren't allowed to. And many people do care (at least if it is very obvious).
    So here are my rules to continuity errors:
    If it calls attention to it and it isn't supposed to, it compromises the scene in its most important way, on its emotional level and should therefore be avoided.
    The more budged your movie has, the more attention you, or some other person you hired, should give to errors. Everyone who notices it - be it on the first or 25th time of watching it - will feel like the crew was sloppy and being a high budged blockbuster, you really want to avoid it. That said, the less budged you have, the less important it should be to you, becausethe audience will not expect a flawless movie and will therefore be more forgiving about your "sloppyness".


    PS:
    The study you quoted really doesn't mean anything, because a movie where only faces make sense and the set doesn't at all, simply won't work. The only thing it added, was that no one is capable of noticing every little detail on the screen, especially if there is fast movement or fast cuts -- duh. But actually, some people will notice some details. Also we look at people we talk. I am not sure if the study you quoted got into that, but you certainly did not, so -1 for quoting useless material. Otherwise very compelling arguments.
    Sorry if it is a little unstructured, but it is late at night/early in the morning.

    I feel like this video conflates continuity errors with general editing or blocking issues. The James bond example has nothing to do with continuity, bad acting that wasn't caught. The error you show in your movie with Marcus is a blocking issue, just like in pirates of the Caribbean. The issue pointed out in gladiator is an issue with the special effects/stunts. The hand being placed on the velociraptor is an issue with editing. In the full metal jacket error, to me, it looks like the drill sergeant pulled back with his left hand, and then struck the cadet in the stuck with an open left hand. At least, the cut is so fast, that's what my brain sees, even if R lee Ermy was actually punching with his right in the second shot.

As an editor, there's not much you can do once production has wrapped, and most of the time people won't notice the mistakes. The last film I completed, there were a lot of little mistakes I had to cut around as best I could, and some I just had to leave in because I had no other choice. Almost everyone I've shown the film to said they didn't see any of them, even the ones I thought were most glaring.

    He also jumps 5 feet forwards past the lights when he puts the jacket on.

    The jacket at 0:26 was the least of the scene's problems. The overlit sky and the instability of the camera are far worse than a jacket that isn't easily noticeable.

    Im not see the jaket error, I so see the cup that the baby had on hand, and the mistake about the scene with the camera man on the window is very easy to fix in post, I dont know why they dont fix in post.

    6:52 Can't you keyframe and draw a mask around the window, or key it out, or even use 10 min of after effects to remove it??
