The Prince of Egypt picture

Continuity mistake: After Moses accidentally kills the guard at the temple, someone points out Moses as the killer and they point straight up. However, we see a shot from behind Moses while he stares at the fallen guard and the angle in that shot between where Moses stands and the fallen guard and the crowd around him is inconsistent with the scene where someone points Moses out. The body and group have moved from just below the scaffolding to several feet away.
