Cinecity Cincinnati jump cut

Matthew Hynam

Entered as part of Cinecity 2013 this shortlisted one minute film examines the possibility of reading space in a filmic manner. Jump cuts are considered to be a violation of the editing process exposing the viewer to the structure of film. Within this clip a jump cut is considered to be a sudden interruption in spatial rhythm resulting from an abrupt change in scale, form or character, heightening a viewer’s awareness of a space’s fabric. The jump cuts appear to take place where the city’s grain has been edited, erased or replaced overtime by newer grains.

Beyond the clip the idea that moving space could be analysed using filmic techniques and potentially designed from a mobile perspective is what excites me the most.
