This video (below) shows some of the techniques we used.
For example: Jump cuts during a point of view shot to shorten time.
This video is particularly helpful when explaining the different effects when using a match cut and a jump cut. As a jump cut can be quite choppy. On the other hand a match cut of him going down the stairs cuts time in a subtle way. The cutaway is clever as well as the match cut which acts as another angle of cutting the time off him walking down the stairs.
