This really applies to feature films but here is a link to a really fun video about continuity in editing. You know when in one scene a glass of beer is emtpy and when they cut back to the same scene the glass of beer is filled again?

I stopped counting at 24 mistakes but there is well over 100. Some good stuff here

Thanks for the link Eric,


A colleague and I watched this at my desk and laughed out loud! I agree this mainly applies to feature films but there is definitely advice I can take and use in my edits. What a fun way to get a point across, though....
