Deictic shift & diegetic world

This clip might help film students to fully grasp the concept of diegesis that I mention in many lectures and assignments. The "deictic shift" that the guy discusses is the moment when we lower our guard, suspend our disbelief, and end up accepting (and co-creating) the fictional world of the film--i.e., the diegesis.
