Week 4 editing (for blog) Week 4 editing (for blog) Presentation Transcript

  • Editing
    Cuts
  • Shot/Reverse Shot
    Definition
    A shot is taken over the shoulder of one of the characters to show the other character speaking. The next shot is of the same type but the other way round. These shots are then taken together and used in a conversation sequence to provide a break from shots showing the characters the two characters together.
    Dramatic Meaning
    Links together two characters, often in conversation.
  • Eyeline Match
    Definition
    A type of edit which cuts from a character to what the character is looking at.
    Dramatic Meaning
    Can be used for audiences to possibly empathise with a particular character.
  • Graphic Match
    Definition
    An editing effect in which two different objects of the same shape dissolve from one into the other.
    Dramatic Meaning
    Smoothens the transition, but can be used for metaphorical associations.
  • Action Match
    Definition
    Usually referred to as match-on-action- the actions of a character are continued in the following shot.
    Dramatic Meaning
    Adds variety and dynamism.
  • Jump Cut
     Definition
    A type of editing which breaks the continuity of the viewing experience.
    Dramatic Meaning
    Jump cuts are used expressively, to suggest the ruminations or ambivalences of a character. Jump cuts draw attention to the telling such a story.
  • Cross-Cutting
    Definition
    The process of editing from one simultaneous scene to another and then usually back to the original scene.
    Dramatic Meaning
    The two actions and characters are linked together in some capacity.
  • Parallel Editing
    Definition
    A type of editing which allows two or more possibly connected stories in a text to run at the same time. Scenes are not necessarily simultaneous.
    Dramatic Meaning
    Strictly speaking this differs from cross-cutting in the sense that instead of cuts occurring simultaneously to one another it is instead over time.
  • Cutaway
    Definition
    A cut with an instantaneous distancing from the previous shot, though of the same object or character. The new shot is not one seen in the master shot.
    Dramatic Meaning
    The two actions and characters are linked together in some capacity.
  • Insert
    Definition
    A cut to a close-up of something that is seen in the master shot.
    Dramatic Meaning
    The two actions and characters are linked together in some capacity.
  • Edit

  • Slow motion
    Dramatic Meaning
