Making Comic - Moving Pictures
Aspect-to-aspect shots are used several times in this book. They appear between scene changes and are used to establish a new location and often a new time frame (the past or present). Aspect-to-aspect is used instead of scene-to-scene shots to give the story better pacing. Things do not happen abruptly in this story, the pacing is slow and methodical and the aspect shots help to keep that pace. Also, when we see these aspect-to-aspect shots it is often a segue to the main character remembering a past event. The shots are a way of visually seeing what the character is remembering about a specific place and time.
