    Re: Montage VS collage

    The way I most often hear the words used (although not the only definitions):

    montage: in film, a series of shots edited together to tell a story or create a mood.

    collage: in visual art, a work made by cutting up different materials into pieces and putting them together to make a new picture.

    More detailed definitions of montage and collage from Merriam Webster. Wikipedia has an entry for each word, too.

    Just for fun, here is a parody of a training montage, where a movie shows characters becoming experts in just a few minutes of screen time.

    So montage is NOT a slideshow of shots correct?

    In my experience, not usually. I have mostly heard it used to refer to a series of film or video shots that have been edited together - not a series of still images.

    But wikipedia says that montage "most often refers to collage including photomontage and sound collage."

    It seems like the word "montage" is used a lot of different ways - you can't say it means just one thing.
