CROSS FADES // Film Editing Techniques Part 2


Ep. 2 Cross Fades & Cross Dissolves
In this advanced film editing tutorial, we take a look at cross fades, which are a type of transition which are commonly used in films to show a passing of time, but are also used to create a sense of continuity. They can also be referred to as cross dissolves.

Disclaimer and Function:
This series is intended to be an offered opinion about universal application of different and common editing techniques and their apparent and desired effects, which is by no means definitive in its explanations. In this, whilst I am covering techniques, their use and discussing their functions, there are obviously examples in mainstream and indie films that will employ these techniques for an alternative effect and response. The most important thing that you can take away from this series, in addition to the potential accumulation of familiar technique to response relationships, is the consideration of the audience and the way they will interpret what you put on the screen, which is foremost not what you instantly assume to be the resulting effect.
