Creative Transitions:

Match Cuts

"A match cut, also called a graphic match, is a cut in film editing between either two different objects, two different spaces, or two different compositions in which an object in the two shots graphically match, often helping to establish a strong continuity of action and linking the two shots metaphorically."

Continutity Editing

"In general, "continuity" means that a coherent space and time are continuing over the cut, so that the spectator's understanding of a story isn't disturbed by a sense that bits of time have been left out or that characters have changed positions at the cut. "

Quotes from David Bordwell author of Film Art: An Introduction
