Shot transition--wipe

by Oliver Gaycken

A wipe connects these two shots; it moves from screen right to screen left. This wipe is a good example of how more visible shot transitions (wipes, dissolves, fades) tend to mark transitions from one scene to another. So here the wipe marks an ellipsis from the jail to the taxicab.
