a special effect in which images are projected very quickly one after the other. (Shots are thus not directly overlaid, as in a montage done on paper but are changed quickly to create the same effect). This can be used to show the quick passage of time or to inject an association into the viewerâ??s consciousness, e.g. a man eating / piles of rich food / the man eating again / cakes and beer / the man eating (the man is greedy).
