I'm looking at the term "eye plane" wondering if it refers to "eye line" or what.
Anyone have an ABSOLUTE answer for this?
I've managed to direct a hundred or so short films and three features without using this term, but I'd still like to know.

"Eye plane." Never heard it, myself. I' ve heard of "sagital plane," which isn't really a plane, but the imaginary line between two characters' noses, this being "the line" we generally avoid crossing. "Eye line" to me means the direction an actor is pointing his eyes ... more of an issue in C/U's. ("Her eyeline needs to be closer to the lens...")
Same with me... I've never heard of "eye plane" either, just "eye line" -- the direction the actor's eyes are pointed.

That's the best I can come up with! I know that you're looking for an absolute definition; in what context did you find the term?

And ''eye plane'' is a plane with a big eye painted on it somewhere.
