French term or phrase: Valeur de plan
This is included in a description of the editing/shooting style of a short film - any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Découpage / montage / valeurs de plan : le film se déroulera suivant un principe de zoom/dézoom qui donnera un sentiment de plan-séquence (aucun cut) qui traduit la vie, la réalité, et donc nous montre une tranche de vie, à l'opposé d'une réalisation "clippesque" (pas de montage haché, d'ellipse de temps par le montage, ni d'effets clinquants gratuits)

neutral  Tony M: '3' is a rather high confidence level for an admitted guess — and from my own personal, professional experience in the biz, I don't think your guess is right in this case.
