Transitions In Our Genre: Crime/thriller:

Transitions In Our Genre: Crime/thriller To make sure that our trailer would have relevant transitions to the genre we looked into the transitions for the trailers we analysed . I found that trailers generally started with slow transitions such as fades in and out of black, or cross-dissolve and as the trailer progressed each shot was shorter and transitions switched to fast pace cuts, either to other shots or to black. A good example of this is The Purge trailer – see to the right – the first gif is from the beginning of the trailer, the second in the middle where the transitions have gotten faster and the final gif is from the end where they have gotten even quicker. For more in depth look at specifics of trailers see our research posts ( https:// ).
