Term: Cross-Cutting (Cross-Cut)

« Back to Glossary Index

Cross-cutting is a technique of cutting back and forth between different lines of action occurring at two or more different locations but taking place at the same time. This often creates suspense and increases the pace within a sequence, as generally the viewer expects a resolution of both events in one space. A related technique is parallel editing.
