Fast Cuts: From Carpool To The Reader's View

Satisfactory Essays
Carpool is characterized by fast cuts and a rather unconventional style to communicating the

narrative. The quirky editing maintained throughout the short film helps establish the light-

hearted and somehow comedic mood of the story, from a viewer's perspective. The fast cuts

helped convey a sense of confusion and disarray to the viewer, telling of the state of the

character's relationships and behavior. The fast cuts had a tendency to be most prominent in

heated conversations between the characters. This technique was also employed whenever

Paul recounts his relationships with all of the girls, drawing over the names of the months on a

calendar, to give a sense of fast passage of time.

The film made no hesitance from the start
