Question by dennis m: what is seamless film editing in films?
Answer by zeebya
Seamless film editing is, basically, editing in such a way as the cuts or dissolves (or other transitions) don’t call attention to themselves as a technique.
The editing serves to properly tell the story, not to show off all the cool techniques the editor can come up with.
Seamless editing as we know it was begun by the Russians in the early 20th century. One of it’s pioneers was Sergei Eisenstein, who made a film called BATTLESHIP POTEMKIN.
