The Art of the Ellipsis

by Fandor

Diegetic time that is omitted is an editing technique known as the ellipsis. The purpose of this technique is to avoid redundant explanations, to create humor, and to mark the passage of time. Fandor demonstrates the use of the ellipsis in Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey famous match-cut scene.
