Take a look at the transitions used in this Into the Mind trailer. They are some of the most creative I've ever seen. What are some of your favorite ways to do transitions of time and place that does not involve a cross dissolve?
The transitions on this blew me away!I recently shot a story about a local musician that sort of exploded into a mini-documentary. To transition between segments I used some of Final Cut's "Bad TV" effects. (The band's name is Straight to VHS)http://www.theday.com/article/20121228/MEDIA0104/121229800/
