Notes: for project

  • cross cutting – two scenes playing out at the same time (switching between the 2)
  • the scene starts with slow camera movements/ cross cutting slower and lasts on one shot for a long time, then it gets faster and sharper/ more intense
  • the scene ends with the two different scenes characters doing the same thing at the end.
  • timed with the music
  • can have two pieces of music
  • make the music drive the action
