os Angeles - We continue with the Fundamental Series exploring the techniques employed in creating a visual dynamic story for its entertainment value. Here we have an shot by shot analysis of the concept of Montage, a technique used to this day by movie makers the world over.
It is not just the classics but modern block busters that employ this visual layering technique pioneered and championed by the early Soviet filmmakers for its obvious political propaganda bonanza that it has yielded over the past 100 years.
Although continuity editing, combining related shots into a sequence, is the dominant technique in feature movie creation, sometimes referred to as "cutting to or on continuity" is in contrast with approaches such as montage, in which the editor aims to generate, in the mind of the viewer a new idea through a series of relatively unrelated shots that together make up the new idea.
In other words montage is a continuity of collage images. So here then is a clip we found that best illustrates this technique often used yet rarely referenced, overshadowed by its bigger brother, continuity editing.
