Students will strengthen their cinematic voice as they learn about and how to work with different kinds of conventional cuts, such as reverse cuts, POV, reactions, inserts, and jump cuts. Students will also learn how and when to employ other types of transitions such as dissolves, fades, and superimpositions.
