Reading Response: Understanding Comics

Understanding Comics was an interesting read. This along with the lecture that took place on Wednesday, complimented each other nicely. Never thinking much of the effects cuts and transitions can have on a piece, I would like to think I am a little closer to having a better grasp on how each type of transition can effect the viewer. By taking advantage of the few split seconds between frames, an editor can dramatically influence the mood and feel of a project. Slightly on the subconscious level, cuts can help direct movement and drive specific emotions. Cutting from one scene to the next extremely fast, can add the effect of suspense. Helping to reenforce content and support main ideas within the narrative.
