TLF ID L2845
Explore how editing helps to tell a story in films. Learn words used to describe transitions and time span of scenes. See how the order of scenes and type of transitions can affect the flow, set a mood and keep an audience interested. Look at ways to create feelings such as excitement, humour or fear. For example, a 'fade-in' transition introduces a subject gently and may create a romantic mood. Look at a model sequence of shots in a romance film. Notice how different editing choices change the meaning of a scene. Choose sequences for a comedy or horror film. Choose shots to build a scary feeling or set up a joke. This learning object is one in a series of four objects.
