Cut-in (Insert Shot)

Any shot whose only objective is to draw the viewer’s attention to a single aspect inside a scene is referred to as a cut-in/insert shot. These shots are frequently taken from the perspective of a character, implying that we see what the topic sees during a focused moment.

Insert shots can be written into the screenplay, although the director will direct most shots. These shots are frequently performed by the 2nd unit or in pickups to cover editing gaps.

Close-up or extreme close-up pictures are frequently used in these images so that the spectator can read texts or perceive a minor element.

In more pragmatic filmmaking terms, tweens (also known as cutscenes) are used to support your cinematic storytelling with additional visual information. For example, there are close-ups of technical data such as newspaper headlines, small articles like merchandise, weapons or doorknobs.
