Manipulate Meaning: kuleshov effect

“The Kuleshov Effect is the single most important concept to editing, if not to filmmaking itself. ”

It’s the form of  creating a montage of images/clips to convey a message to the view.  There is an example below that best describes the effect.

Lev Kuleshov was a Russian filmmaker, who came up with the idea in 1921 to improve his films. “Kuleshov asked the question: what made cinema a distinct art, separate from photography, literature or theatre? He found that any form of art consists of two things, the material itself and the way in which the material is organized.”
