What is Jump Cuts ?

Jump cuts are a very important concept in video editing. Here we give the definition of jump cuts and we show concrete examples of use.

Tutorial

Jump cut is basically deleting a dead space, a pause, between 2 sentences to keep the video running in a continuous flow. For example, the time when we do amm, aaaa, aahhh and things like that while talking or when we need to have a look at our notes or our script and continue talking.

Jump cuts are usually used to get rid of the extra time in the video and to keep the viewer fully engaged but cutting off all the unnecessary parts. For example a 50minutes raw video can be shortened to 20minutes by using jump cuts and getting rid off of all the useless parts.

Despite Jump cuts being so useful, there are still alot of people who hate them and get annoyed with them so we have to be as professional with them as possible to minimize that. We will explain about how to work with it in our next article.

A jump cut is a stylistic choice that makes the edit completely visible whereas most editing techniques are designed to hide the edit. They are still used in films very often and also by vloggers and youtubers.

Jump cuts can be used in montages, to amplify tension, to introduce characters, to accent mental states, in interviews, etc...
