The 180 degree rule is an important element of the continuity style.
If this rule is not followed, the characters will not appear to be addressing each other and the cinematic illusion will be broken, as the viewer's sense of perspective is disrupted.
The 180 degree rule also applies to other shots: for example, in a chase scene, if a car exits the frame to the left, it must enter the next shot from the right.

The 180 degree rule basically describes a line running perpendicular to the camera and the camera is understood to have to stay on the same side of this line for each of the subsequent shots it makes.
The exception to this rule is where the camera is moving, in these circumstances it can freely cross the 180 degree line, though where the movement terminates is understood to establish a new 180 degree line.

 180 Rule - Topic Powered by eve community
June 16, 2004 11:06 AM I noticed something called the "180 rule" referenced a number of times on the site, and I wasn't so sure what that is. I know of the "rule of thirds", all though that is more used in photography.
The 180 Degree Rule basically means that you shouldn't change the angle on the actor (usually when there's more than one actor in the scene) more than 180 degrees because it confuses the audience.
Just like every other rule there are circumstance where you can break this one, one example of this is in a montage sequence, the fast pace can hide the change in angle and can sometimes make it look more interesting as well.

Classical editing achieves a "smooth" and "seamless" style of narration, both because of its conventionality (it is "invisible" in part because we are so used to it) and because it employs a number of powerful techniques designed to maximize a sense of spatial and temporal continuity.
Beyond maintaining consistant spatial relations and directions of movement and looking, the180 degree rule also insures that the space in each shot will be immediately legible, since there will be more or less consistent and recognizable background from one shot to the next.
The camera must move at least 90 degrees between the two shots (in order to move from person A's end of the axis to person B's), while staying on only one side of the figures (that is, one side of the 180 degree line).

A good rule of thumb is a film is a success if it makes a substantial portion of its cost the first week of release.

 The Director's Template
The Director's template has a tool for drawing in the 180 degree axis and it is worthwhile to get in the habit of drawing it in.
Another aspect of the 180 degree axis is that the closer to the axis the camera is, the more the viewer's point of view resembles the characters, and thus he feels WITH the character.

 The Continuity System--Film Editing
A key element of the continuity system is the 180 DEGREE RULE, which states that the camera must stay on only one side of the actions and objects in a scene.
For example, an actor walking from the left side of the screen to the right will not suddenly, in the next shot, appear to be walking in the opposite direction -- a reversal that would strike the viewer, if only fleetingly, as confusing or jarring.
With the 180 DEGREE RULE, the viewer rarely experiences even a momentary sense of spatial disorientation.

Every 180 degree of the crankshaft rotation there is one exhaust pulse entering the collector.
This is ideal timing because, as one pulse exits the collector, the next exhaust valve is opening and the vacuum created in the system pulls the exhaust from the cylinder.
In this ideal 180 degree cycling the collector outlet diameter only needs to be 20% larger than the primary tube diameter.

If you shoot the left profile throughout a scene and then one closeup has the right profile it may appear that the actor turned their back on the person they were talking to.
There are lots of ways around the basic rule (props or background that helps with orientation, move the camera, additional setups from the new angle, move the actors) but its best to know this sort of thing when you are on location rather than try to force it later in post.
