You Need To Know How To Transition

    This breakdown of all the various kinds of cuts is critical when learning how to make movies. Knowing how and where to cut and transition in your film is basic editing 101. And nowhere else on YouTube is this so expertly done as with this video by the channel, RocketJump Film School. (When you’re done watching, be sure to check out some of their other great videos.)

    This particular video stands out above the rest because it lays out each type of cut and transition with examples from different popular movies.

    Videos like these are great to reference when you go to edit your movie or project. Each cut has a specific purpose and communicates the idea in the story effectively. I had no idea how much a cut can contribute to the film and how important the editing process is.

    I highly recommend watching, whether you understand editing or not, and whether you’re in the industry or just starting out as an independent filmmaker.
