Video: A match cut is a technique filmmakers use to link two different scenes together by cutting from one shot to another in a way that’s almost visually seamless because the shots look so much alike. It can cut on character or cut on action, it could be used metaphorically like the bone matching the orbiting satellite in 2001: A Space Odyssey or it could be used to go to back in time like in Forrest Gump, but it’s always fun to see because it feels like you’re teleporting to a different part of the same story without even realising it.

Here’s a compilation of match cuts by Celia Gomez. It includes movies like Psycho, Minority Report, Titanic and Shrek.
