Transition Techniques That Will Make Your Film Come Alive

We, as, filmmakers like to be creative in our approach to cinematography. That’s why it’s beneficial to be aware of different transition techniques that can help to enhance any project we set our minds to. 

Cinematography is an art form, one that captivates the audience and brings so much to the table. Learning how to utilise it properly can be incredibly powerful. 

When cutting between shots, you don’t always want a classic jump-cut or a crossfade. You want something that will catch the viewer’s eye, something that will keep your audience interested. 

YouTube channel, Film Riot posted a video going over different transition techniques you should know and how to use them. 

This video helps any filmmaker who desires to make a powerful film. 

Check out this video for inspiration on how to use tantalizing transitions for your next project.
