We used a match on action shot when Ed walked through the door. A match on action shot is when you cut just after an action has started, change the angle of the camera and then cut just as the action is finishing. In this example we have Ed opening the door, we cut the camera and start filming the other side of the door whilst we film him come through. As you can see from the two shots on the first image you see that we cut after the first action where Ed opens the door and move the camera. Then we see on the second image that when he is finishing the action of coming through the door we cut again.
