Each shot in a movie sequence carries the action forward. So it is important to be aware of all visual elements in each succeeding shot. Notice all the details in the player’s appearance: hair, clothing, accessories, props, etc. Also notice action. If a player is moving left to right, your next shot of that action would have to match that flow.

Edit-In-Camera movies are made in a linear sequence. So players often have to freeze in position between shots – or at least remember precisely what they have been doing at all times. This exercise in concentration is probably one of the most practical aspects of these activities.
