Always Cut ‘On the Action’


When editing a shot of someone doing something, make sure to cut to the next shot during the action that your subject is performing.

For example, if you’re editing together a sequence of someone opening a door before walking through it, cut to the shot of the subject opening the door at the precise moment the person turns the door handle. Cutting away before or after the action can look jarring and distract the viewer. You may not even have to worry about this, but it’s worth bearing in mind if you’re working on a more ambitious video.
