How does continuity editing differ from my montage?
—-present an image of the world that is ordered, coherent and structured.
- Jump cut: interrupt a single shot and produce a noticeable ship.
- Establishing shot: show the whole acne, setting, spatial relationships between character and important action.(long shot)
- 180 degree rule(do not cross the line)
- Match on action (Conversation and reaction shot cutaways, this kind of Match cut shows relationships.)
the way of matching scene transitions imply connected different meaning in story.
(see 金敏’s work, the way of matching scene transitions
establishing shot? no, only a point of view to bring you in his world
- Eyeliner matches
- 30 degree rule
- Shot reverse shot editing
Reverse shot has some specific pattern to do it in film to preserve the coherence of space. And the jump cut will be avoided that won’t violate th 30• rule.
Sometimes the editor will withhold narrative informations from the viewer by avoiding reverse shot for POVs. Because part of pleasure of the horror film is identifying with monsters and villains; the missing reverse shot can help make this possible. (154)
- POV: point of view + subjective shot
Intensified editing(new style, lass medium shot; more,tighter and faster)
Five minute sequence to analysis
Any moment didn’t followed
So what’s the sequence of that?
How many kind of transitions been used?
The movement and shape of the two objects is matched graphically, (or in same layout) stressing a thematic relationship between the first to and the invention of space travel.( all in single cut)
Graphic matches create visual relationships between shots, often emphasis thematic or spatial relationships between objects/subjects.
(Narrative is not the main purpose, but to create physically affect)
Refer to character psychology, graphic and rhythmic relationship, or comment on the ideological form of the medium.
Film has the ability to take an audience on a journey like no other art form. This is what a story does, the power of narrative is that it can immerse you completely, to the point you forget your own reality for those few minutes or couple of hours.
