  Shot reverse shot - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Shot reverse shot (or shot/countershot) is a film technique wherein one character is shown looking (often off-screen) at another character, and then the other character is shown looking "back" at the first character.
However, shot reverse shot is also often combined with creative geography to create the sense that two characters are facing each other, when in fact they are being filmed in completely different locations or at completely different times.
These techniques are all features of the "classical" Hollywood style of continuity editing, which deemphasizes transitions between shots such that the audience perceives one continuous action that develops linearly, chronologically, and logically.

When a director shoots the star in Medium Long Shot and then decides to move in for a medium close up, the position of the body (including hands and legs) has to be consistent from shot to shot.
