I was referring to the overuse of fast cuts to induce/simulate some
kind of excitement. Particularly when the technique is used in place
of a lack of concept or engaging narrative. I've seen this mostly in
cable television productions and commercials. There was a production
on syneasthesia by Discovery that did this so much I thought I was
going to have a fit of epilepsy.
