Hip Hop Montage

Hip hop montage[edit]
A hip hop montage is a subset of fast cutting used in film to portray a complex action through a rapid series of simple actions in fast motion, accompanied by sound effects. The technique was first given its name by Darren Aronofsky, who used the technique in his films Pi and Requiem for a Dream to portray drug use.[1] The technique is derived from the hip hop culture of the 1990s and jump cuts first pioneered in the French new wave.

The montage is made up of smash cuts: jarring abrupt transitions between apparently unrelated images.

Louis,

Just to help with the terminology - a Jump Cut is what happens when a shot is interrupted and you need to cut a part out of a continuous take. The best example is someone at a podium speaking. If they suddenly cough mid sentence - you need to cut out the cough - and when you do that, since the position of the speaker is going to be different before and after the edit, the picture will JUMP rather than play cleanly.

Generally, jump cuts call attention to an edit and take the audience out of the scene flow. However, audiences have become somewhat accustomed to seeing jump cuts and if the story continues to make sense, it can be acceptable as a cutting style if the material supports that.

Hope that helps.
