  • Imagine a film is like a series of strips of paper stuck together. Each piece is a SHOT, a piece of continuous filming. When these shots are “stuck” together this is a CUT
  • The way the shots and cuts are arranged gives meaning to the film
  • Some shots are joined together by TRANSITIONS. these are different ways that connect together the shots of the fim
