I am trying to write about the editing techniques in this clip here:

and at the 0:39-0:41 section I want to describe what editing technique is used where the scene stays the says but the character changes but I can't find any terms that describe it.

Thanks for any help.

(The film is what I made for college, it was not great as the camera we used was terrible and we ran into a lot of issues)

  • Those are usually called jump cuts, but I'm not completely sure in that situation where it cuts to multiple people doing the same action. Nov 27, 2015 at 2:10

It is a jump cut (creating a short video loop) followed by a match cut.
