In this sequence (I apologize in advance for the content!) the editing and manipulations give the impression of a distorted perception of time. The scene also makes heavy use of color and also has some split screen shots. A little bit of everything.
Here’s a nice video that describes and shows examples for a variety of cuts and transitions including jump cuts, match cuts, smash cuts, wipes, dissolves, etc.
Here’s a good tutorial that shows how to correct and adjust skin tones. The tutorial is a bit technical in terms of talking about cameras and stuff, but it’s a pretty helpful example of using the HSL Secondary color correction effect.
A split edit, is a transition from one shot to another in film or video, where transition of the audio and video happen at different times. This is often done to enhance the aesthetics or flow of the film, allowing the audience to see context—either before or after—of speaking rather than simply the speaking itself.
In film, a match cut is a cut from one shot to another where the two shots are matched by the action or subject and subject matter. For example, in a duel a shot can go from a long shot on both contestants via a cut to a medium closeup shot of one of the duellists.
There are a lot of different ways a filmmaker can employ split screens, here are just a few. This video essay is part of the “Everything You Need to Know” series created exclusively for No Film School (http://nofilmschool.com) by Senior Post (http://www.senior-post.com).

Sure there are expensive pieces of software for making noise, but there are plenty of things you can find that’ll cost you nothing (or next to nothing). This is a link to John’s sound resource site.
Credit Sequences in films are often a place where designers showcase some imaginative typography.

I think it was in the time of spring 2012, when I came across David Shiyang Liu’s lovely piece of work about Ira Glass. It was the most inspiring and motivating video I had ever seen in my life. I watched it over and over again, listened to Ira Glass’ voice, and told myself, that I am not the only person who is constantly disappointed about the gap between one’s taste and one’s skills. Later in 2012, I decided to do my own filmed version of Ira’s interview – using my own language to tell his message. It took me about a year from concept to upload.
Increasingly sophisticated virtual reality can reward almost every sense, creating a fiction that the brain believes is authentic. Stevyn Colgan explores the addictive possibilities of this sensory immersion, from calorie-free eating to victimless crimes.
Due to the good public transportation in the Netherlands distance has become irrelevant. We can reach almost any destination by train easily and relatively quick. In our busy lives we now think in time rather than distance. Therefore the current maps, as we know them today, are obsolete.
