The rough video created for this example uses footage from the U.S. Army Big Picture film, “Research and Development in the Arctic” as well as a drone shot from NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center. Imagine that the below is just the opening of a longer video about the U.S. military in the Arctic with this particular portion being intended to “set the scene” and establish a tone.

Cutting on movement be it movement in shot or the camera moving
Using sound bridges between shots or scenes
Just for fun and so you can see how much of an impact music has, here is the same video with a different song.
