Also called overlapping editing. An expansion of time, which is accomplished by intercutting a series of shots, or by filming the action from different angles and editing them together. In this way, part or all of an action may be repeated from another viewpoint. Since this cinematic device strongly disrupts the audience’s sense of real time, it is commonly associated with experimental filmmaking. However, it can be used more unobtrusively to stretch time, or to exaggerate the time of a certain movement for dramatic effect. In such cases, overlapping action is then often combined with slow motion.
