Hip hop montage

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Hip-hop montage is a film technique . Here (often in extreme close-ups ) images or actions are shown in quick succession or in time-lapse and underlaid with - characteristic, but possibly exaggerated - sound effects in order to clarify certain - mostly important or often recurring - actions, but also to create a kind of video clip aesthetic to create.

Examples of the more extensive use of hip-hop montage are the films by directors such as Guy Ritchie , Edgar Wright or Darren Aronofsky . While the first two established the technique with films like Snatch - pigs and diamonds or Shaun of the Dead as their own "trademark" or stylistic device, it was used by Aronofsky, for example in Requiem for a Dream, the drug intoxication of the protagonists, in Pi to translate the panic attacks into pictures.
