There are three forms narrative editing: contiguity, continuity and temporal structure. Continuity is things happening in a sequence, contiguity is multiple things happening at the same time and the temporal structure is how you show time passing in various ways.
- Cross cut: things happening in a parallel order.
- Action match: moment in one scene matches movement in another.
- Graphic match: the shape of something in one scene matches the shape of something in another scene.
- Establishing shot: a shot which “establishes” the setting at the start of the scene.
- A cut away: where you show something else in one scene in vicinity – adds information/context.
- Glance/object: when a character glances at an object and then you show the object.
- Match on action: https://11jacksonjac.wordpress.com/2016/09/20/match-on-action/
- Reaction shot: the shot of someone’s reaction to something.
- Shot reverse shot: the most common way to film dialogue. https://11jacksonjac.wordpress.com/2016/09/20/shot-reverse-shot/
- Master shot: recording of an entire dramatized scene, from start to finish, from an angle that keeps all the players in view.
- Fast forward
- Frame skip: like fast forward but skipping frames.
- Freeze frame: freezing the scene/frame.
- Slow motion
- Time compression: when time is compressing in the video, this is making the duration shorter than real-time.
- Juxtaposition: two different shots (to highlight the contrasts/differences).
- Montage: collection of videos in a sequence.
