The Cinematic Passage of Timeby Danny Baldwin
A collection of various formal styles and techniques that signal the passage of time on film.
The following film clips all showcase different ways filmmakers have stylistically and/or narratively inferred the passage of time, be they dissolves, musical montage, CGI effects, time-lapse, jump cuts, or a myriad of other formal strategies. The clips are intended to show a wide range of eras, styles, nations, and philosophies of filmmaking. Compiled for Stu Pollard's Production I (CTPR 507) filmmaking course at the University of Southern California.
