Axis

EN: Axis of action

Cinematografie

In the continuity editing system, the Axis of Action is an imaginary line that passes through the two main actors of a scene, defining the spatial relations of all the elements of the scene as being to the right or left. The camera is not supposed to cross the axis at a cut and thus reverse those spatial relations. Also called the 180° line.

Axis

(also called angle of stress) The axis is the angle at which contrast occurs, and is usually between vertical and a slightly back-slanted diagonal. It derives originally from the angle at which the stroke was made by pen or tool. To find the axis, extend a line along the thickest part of the stroke (or parallel to the thick stroke, through the thinnest areas); letters with bowls such as o or d are usually good letters to choose for this. If the letter is uniform in thickness, it has no axis (no angle of stress). Not to be confused with slope.
