An editing technique in which the exact same action (such as a [[TalkingHeads talking head]]) is filmed from various angles all around the subject, then edited together with {{Jump Cut}}s amongst all the different angles. Similar to the RepeatCut, except that the action is not actually repeated.

Typically, the talking head will focus on one particular camera angle as if it is the only camera recording; all other angles show the subject from the side or even from behind, calmly nattering on whilst facing away from the camera.

The technique is most commonly used with stunt work or similar action sequences, particularly vehicular stunts. In this case the trope is fully justified; most stunts, by their very (destructive) nature, can be performed [[ItOnlyWorksOnce only once]], and those that ''can'' be re-done require time- and money-consuming re-setup, making it more desirable to get it done in one take anyway. Multiple camera setups are used to provide the director and editors with plenty of footage.

Outside of stunt work, the MultiTakeCut tends to be more common in television commercials, but can also be utilized for talking heads in some movies and TV shows, often in combination with the JitterCam. The intention seems to be to add a sense of movement or frenetic excitement to an otherwise dull, boringly static scene. It can also be a bit discombobulating to the viewer, an effect which might actually be desirable in, say, a mystery or thriller.

Because this trope is [[OmnipresentTropes so ubiquitous]] in stunts, please submit '''Non-Stunt Examples''' only:
* Sam Waterston's spots for TD Waterhouse
* ''{{NCIS}}'' uses it in pretty much every establishing shot, with a few seconds clearly passing between each cut. Presumably done to give a sense of hurry.
* ''Animal Exploration with Jarod Miller''
* Any time [[SoulEater Death the Kid]] fires the Death Cannon, there are four takes of the show from different angles (counting the first one) the one exception in the anime is the final fight against the Kishin, where he fires it multiple times without the cuts.
* Many local news shows have reporters record on-location promotional blurbs.
* In ''Film/GIJane'', the scene in which Demi Moore's character shaves her head.
* Of course, it's also common in [[MusicVideoTropes music videos]].
* Sexy Silvia's exclusive power in ''ViewtifulJoe 2'' is to playback the same attack three times for triple damage, even though you only attacked once.
* Done in the videogame ''VideoGame/TheDarkness'' in the loading screens. Nicky has a series of monologues while he's sitting or standing under a spotlight. He talks directly ahead but the camera will constantly change angles.
* ''Series/DoctorWho'': Done in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS28E9TheSatanPit "The Satan Pit"]] during the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aqlqQsKG94I "if I believe in one thing"]] speech.
* Creator/ChristopherNolan sometimes [[DownplayedTrope downplays]] this trope, such as in the hospital explosion in ''Film/TheDarkKnight''. As shown [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R-iuuwOtsow here]], Nolan filmed the explosion from several angles, but decided to put only two in the finished movie.
