Music videos have little or no discernible plot. Some music videos interpret the lyrics of the song, but many are quite abstract and mix filmmaking techniques like animation, live action and documentary. While so-called “MTV style” editing is really not new, it certainly continues the alternative or experimental style of editing which broke from the “classical Hollywood” or Continuity style of editing. This school of video editing is disjointed, discontinuous, non-linear narrative. It uses fast cutting and it breaks the continuity rules such as the 180 degree rule, shot-reverse-shot, match action, and eyeline matching. MTV style editing favors place, mood and feeling over character and plot development.
