Wider context[ edit ] Match cuts form the basis for continuity editingsuch as the ubiquitous use of match on action. Continuity editing smooths over the inherent discontinuity of shot changes to establish a logical coherence between shots.
Even within continuity editing, though, the match cut is a contrast both with cross-cutting between actions in two different locations that are occurring simultaneously, and with parallel editing, which draws parallels or contrasts between two different time-space locations.
Indeed, rather than the seamless cuts of continuity editing within a scene, the term "graphic match" usually denotes a more conspicuous transition between or comparison of two shots via pictorial elements. Notable examples[ edit ] A bone-club and a satellite in orbit, the two subjects of the iconic match cut in Stanley Kubrick 's A Space Odyssey contains a famous example of a match cut.
As the bone spins in the air, there is a match cut to a much more advanced tool: An early example comes from Orson Welles 's Citizen Kanewhich opens with a series of match dissolves that keeps the titular character's lit window in the same part of the frame while the cuts take viewers around his dilapidated Xanadu estate, before a final match dissolve takes viewers from the outside to the inside where Kane is dying.
The edit was later praised by Steven Spielberg as inspiration for his own work. The match cut here skips over the courting, the marriage proposal, and the actual marriage of the two characters who had for much of the film been adversaries.
Right after Marion Crane is murdered in the famous "shower scene", the camera shows blood flowing down the drain of the tub, then cuts dissolves to a shot of Marion's eye.
Mabuse the Gamblerhe shows a circular casino from above and cuts to a circle of hands at a seance happening the same night involving Mabuse and others.
This smoothly changes into the simultaneous scene and links the two activities as "decadent" pastimes of the rich in pursuit of excitement and celebrity. Early in the ad there are match cuts between a taxi cab, a tractor, and a bike, all facing the camera with the headlights on.
Later there is a match cut between two men, both hoisting the American flag. For his fantasy film Highlanderdirector Russell Mulcahy employs multiple match cuts to indicate movements backwards in time and forwards again to the present day, telling the story of an immortal who relives episodes from his past in the ancient Highlands of Scotland and later across Europeas he faces his final challenge in modern New York City.
Examples include a World Wrestling Federation match cutting back to the bloody clan battles of his youth, a fish tank cutting back to an experience in a boat on a lochand an emotional face in the past dissolving into a giant NYC advertising hoarding showing the impassive Mona Lisa.
In the case of this film, the match cut is integral to the storytelling, as a potentially confusing back-and-forth narrative is thus held together; with the denouement's final cut to Scotland cleverly revealed to be not a jump in time, as previously, through the inclusion of a modern fighter jet in flight over the Highlands.
In the film Aliens there is a match cut between a close-up of Ripley's sleeping face and a distant shot of planet Earth. Yet another example of a match cut can be found in the final episode of the first season of David Lynch and Mark Frost 's television show Twin Peaks.
In the opening moments as Dr.
Jacoby is struck down by a masked assailant and rolls over onto his back, the camera zooms in onto his eye which slowly fades away to a roulette wheel in One Eyed Jack's casino. This transition is a key moment in the episode as it connects two very different story lines together through a strategic cut.
The Simpsons make major usage of the match cut, providing seamless transitions between scenes. Notable examples include the cut from young Homer to current-day Homer in " Bart Star ", the transition from Marge to the character in her novel, in " Diatribe of a Mad Housewife ", and hundreds more.
The usage of the match cut has ultimately become a major recurring trait of the series.Course Details. You will study three modules in each taught semester.
