The following transition scenes are used to clue the audience in on important information and either take them comfortably out of the previous scene or prepare them for the next (or in a great case, both). Whether it be introducing us to an environment, character or giving us the facts we need to understand what’s coming next, transition scenes are key to the fluidity of film.
