Supercut: Fade to white

Thursday, April 16, 2015

Video artist Jacob T. Swinney (previously) documents the use of the "fade to white" transition technique in cinema.
What does it mean when a film fades to white? When a film ends with the more traditional fade to black, there tends to be a sense of closure. On the other hand, ending with the much less common fade to white seems to create a sense of ambiguity. When not used at the end of a film, fades to white are often used to express disorientation and euphoria, among many other similar sensations. Here is a look at a variety of films that utilize the fade to white for a variety of purposes.
