Cut- The splicing of two shots together. This cut is made by the film editor. Between sequences the cut marks a rapid transition between one time and space and another, but depending on the nature of the cut it will have different meanings. I did this on nearly every shot, as some shots dragged. 

Continuity editing- is the predominant style of film editing and video editing in the post-production process of filmmaking of narrative films and television programs. The purpose of continuity editing is to smooth over the inherent discontinuity of the editing process and to establish a logical coherence between shots.This was done after all the shots were put in the right place on the timeline, so there would be smooth transitions. 

Cross cutting- Cutting between different sets of action that can be occurring simultaneously or at different times, Cross-cutting is used to build suspense, or to show the relationship between the different sets of action.I did not do this as it wouldn't of looked as good and wouldn't of made sense to the animation.   

Dissolve- A dissolve a first image gradually dissolves or fades out and is replaced by another which fades in over it. This type of transition, which is known also as a soft transition. this was done on nearly every time, to make a smooth transition. this was used on more than one occasion to change scene. 

Establishing shots- is usually the first shot of a new scene, designed to show the audience where the action is taking place. It is usually a very wide shot or extreme wide shot. this was done a few times so the audience know that there has been a change of scene. 

Eyeline match- is a film editing technique associated with the continuity editing system. It is based on the premise that the audience will want to see what the character on-screen is seeing. 

Fade- In the post-production process of film editing and video editing, a dissolve is a gradual transition from one image to another. The terms fade-out and fade-in are used to describe a transition to and from a blank image. 

Final cut- The final cut is the final edit of the finished product, this is the one people will actually get to view. 

Jump cut-Cut where there is no match between the two spliced shots. Within a sequence, or more particularly a scene, jump cuts give the effect of bad editing. The opposite of a match cut, the jump cut is an abrupt cut between two shots that calls attention to itself because it does not match the shots seamlessly. It marks a transition in time and space but is called a jump cut because it jars the sensibilities; it makes the spectator jump and wonder where the narrative has gone. 

Matched cut-Exactly the opposite of a jump cut within a scene. These cuts make sure that there is a spatial-visual logic between the differently positioned shots within a scene. thus, where the camera moves to, and the angle of the camera, makes visual sense to the spectator. 

Montage-Simply, editing. More particularly: Eisenstein's idea that adjacent shots should relate to each other in such a way that A and B combine to produce another meaning, which is not actually recorded on the film. 

Rough cut- The rough cut is the first stage in which the film begins to resemble its final product. 

Shot reverse - is a film technique where one character is shown looking at another character (often off-screen), and then the other character is shown looking back at the first character. Since the characters are shown facing in opposite directions, the viewer assumes that they are looking at each other. 

Wipe- An optical effect in which an image appears to "wipe-off" or push aside the preceding image. Very common in the 1930s; less so today.
