Jump-cuts in a film is defined as  an unexpected change that generally follows a sequence in a clip,  that happens to make  a person or thing jump from one state or condition to another, without breaking it’s focus. A film that I choose to talk about will be A Space Odyssey;1968. In this short clip you will see a perfect example of jump-cut ; looking from the 33 seconds to the last 45 seconds you’ll see how film jumps back and forth without breaking focus. This part of the clip you’ll see a ship going into space and the globe disappear for a short moment but it comes right back as the ship comes back. You begin to see the sequential jump from one place to another.  With the link I provide below you’ll be able to see an example of jump-cut.
