Have you got the white circle as its own layer below the shadow?

I would

ctrl + click on layer of the circle to select the shape

right click -> select inverse

click shadow layer -> press delete

>>249864
I agree, either delete or using a mask is your best option

Not sure if you realized, the white stripes at the top piece should extend fully to the edge.
The shadows shouldn't be going through the space between the black strips on the bottom, since they aren't floating strips of black but black on a white surface.

Fucking this. One of my biggest pet peeves is when someone claims to be a designer but doesn't know when to use what program and just uses photoshop for everything.

I think that might just be the style he's going for. If you look at the top part of the clapperboard, there's some shadows poking out from the right sides of the white parts.

Set load selection to Ctrl+W shortcut

You'll use it 100x a day

Anyway, load the circle selection, inverse the selection, select the shadow layer, delete

Masks are for nerds
