Match Cut

Of all the Transitions available to writers, most of them do little, add nothing to the story, and can be dispensed with.

However the Match Cut is a Transition that I can stomach above all others.

Look at this example:

Match Cuts are used when the closing Subject of Shot at the end of one scene needs to closely match the opening Subject of Shot of the next.

Whereas with just about every other Transition the writer can find other ways of indicating a transitional effect without actually calling it out, the Match Cut really needs to be called out to ensure the reader fully understands the correlation between the closing and opening images.

Perhaps the director will know what to do without the Match Cut called out, but with it, he DEFINITELY will.
