Continuity Editing
Continuity editing primarily suggests guiding an audience
through a sequence of events, and, in the process, showing
them what they want to see when they want to see it. In the
end, youve told a story or logically traced a series of
events to their conclusion. The purpose of continuity editing
is to smooth over the inherent discontinuity of the editing
process and to establish a logical coherence between shots.
Aspects of Continuity Editing:

Establishing shot
Shot/reverse shot
180 degree rule
Crosscutting
Match on Action
Eye line Match

The benefit of continuity editing allow the narrative to have


a strong structure. The shot sequences flow seamlessly into
each other, making it easier to watch.
