A cinematic device that translates well to prose is the use of a focal point. An object that you see at the end of one scene, fading out, and when things fade back that object is old and rusted. Like a car. At the end of one chapter you could describe a pristine automobile, at the beginning of the next you could describe a dusty old thing with no wheels. Give enough clues that it's the same car, and you're set.
