So I've been doing a scriptwriting course for the past two-three months, and after submitting my last assignment I was told that "CUT TO" is no longer used as it inflates the length of the script and yet takes no time on screen. However the use of "JUMP CUT TO" and things like that are still incorporated for more specific transitions. I was like... someone is joshing me right now. LMAO. But I was looking at some scripts from 2014 films and the dude is right. What do you guys think of the change?

Feel like I've missed the memo, hahahaha! But no, I've always hated the constant "CUT TO" at the end of every scene, especially if they're smaller scenes with just a line of action, or even an establishing shot. Just looks messy and "inflated" is definitely the right word for it.
