101 = beginners’ course (102 = second half of it 201 & 202 = second year course)
Manche von euch, die bereits Filme gedreht habt, werden diese Grundbegriffe wieder erkennen, aber das Video illustriert sie und baut später darauf auf.
CUTTING ON ACTION
= From one shot to another while the subject is still in motion
- Cut-away – cutting from an insert shot to something else and then back
Can be used to show what’s going on in character’s head
- Cross-cutting – between two locations (e.g. phone conversation)
- Jump-cuts – between the same shot, often used to show the passing of time
- Match-cut – same structure, different components
- Used as scene transitions
- Fade in / fade out – dissolving to or from black
- Dissolve – blend from one shot into another
Can also represent a passing of time
- Smash cut – abrupt transition
e.g. waking up
or going from quiet to intense or intense to quiet
- Hidden cuts – e.g. hidden in blackness
- L-cut : audio-based transition _ audio from current shot carries over to the next shot
- J-cut: audio from next scene starts before you get to it
Both are designed to create a seamless transition you might not even notice.
- Creative combinations
Then ask yourself when and why you’d use them in telling your story.
