Transitions are difficult. Hollywood does something called takes because postproduction editing makes each scene appear like a seamless transition. When you force Hollywood to do live transitions, you get the awkwardness that are the various award shows. Real time transitions happen all day. They don’t have to be as awkward as the Oscars. With some intention, a seamless transition can happen. Whether you’re transitioning segments in a live performance or transitioning responsibility from one person to another, no one needs to notice.
