You all must have witnessed this in a hospital, or in a movie scene where if a person is breathing then the machines show a fluctuation in the graph indicating the heart rate and vitals. The same theory is used in a cinema theatre. During the making of a film different dynamics are used to grab the attention of audience. As a filmmaker, if you succeed in fluctuating the emotional graph of your audience then it means that the viewers are enjoying your creation, so throughout the film, you have to keep them engaged. Now let's come to smash cut, what is Smash cut? It is an abrupt cut or change in the shot. As an editor, we do it for different purposes like some times it is used to beautify the sequence or to pull out emotions. Now It is the responsibility of an editor or filmmaker to decide when to use it, using it often can also dilute its impact. Now, what is required to make a Smash cut?
