Transitions

Wouldn't it be great if life had transitions?

Think of how much nicer it would be if you could cut out the boring car ride to the supermarket. Think about how it happens in the movies. The character looks in the refrigerator and realizes there isn't any milk. Next, he grabs his keys from the table and walks out the door. BAM! Segue to the grocery store. He may already be cashing out by this point. I wish I had the power to transition past the boring crap and get chores done faster.

Other film techniques would be great too. Time-laps for example: I've always wanted to watch my beard grow to full length in fast motion.

The possibilities are limitless. If only I could control the world around me in the same way we control cinematic adventures.

What film techniques would you use?
