A jump cut is defined as a cut in film editing where the middle section of a continuous shot is removed, and the beginning and end of the shot are then joined together. The technique breaks continuity in time and produces a startling effect. Any moving objects in the shot will appear to jump to a new position. The film I choose was “The Ring” in this film and in many other horror films we see that the jump cutting technique is very common in these films to frighten the viewer into believing that these events are really happening. We see in the clip above of Sadako Yamamura coming out the t.v and crawl toward the man then stands up and then jump right in front of him causing him to fall over. This is a jump cut where we two shots of the same subject that vary only slightly.
