    Good examples of parallel editing are in most war films, as the camera shoots back and forth between the opposing sides as they run to each other engaging in battle.

  2. Parallel editing is when two seperate scenes are used in the same film sequence.

    I couldn't access any film clip websites but an example of parallel editing could be a scene in an action film where someone is driving in a car during a chase, and then another scene is viewed in an office where the bad guys are conversating.

    An editing technique that allows two or more simultaneous sets unfolds within a single film sequence. It is used to create tension, can also show multiple points of view and can create dramatic irony when the characters are unaware of events unfolding away from the main action.

  9. parralel editing is where you see two sets of action happening alongside each other, and the film cute between the two. this way you can see what is happening at the same time as something else. it is used in most action films where more than one thing is happening at any one time.

    Parallel editing is a technique commonly used in action films that make two separate actions happen at the same time by using straight cuts from one action to another. The editing technique is used to give the impression of intensity.
    A good example of this is in the film 'Vampires' by John Carpenter.
