This glitch requires playing with the Wii U pro controller. Triggering a loading zone on the same frame the option menu comes up allows for playing while the options menu is on the screen. While in this glitched state, the player is blind and can only navigate from sound alone. By scrolling down in the options menu to the controller option, clicking on "Wii U Gamepad" will switch controllers and pause the game, even during cutscenes or text. Then it is possible to save and quit, effectively skipping the cutscene that was being watched.
Because this glitch allows you to save and quit during cutscene, you can save after the cutscene flag sets or after the cutscene item is given to you, then quit, and the cutscene will be gone after reloading your file, essentially skipping the cutscene.
Notable cutscenes this works on, on which this trick can save time:
By savewarping after getting an item but before the flag for collecting said item sets, it is possible to reload your file and get the item again, essentially performing an item dupe. This notably works on:
By savewarping after buying an auction item but before the rupee counter goes down, you can buy auction items without spending rupees; thus you are essentially stealing the item. Pause Storage is generally setup at Beedle's ship for this trick.
By using a bottled item in pause storage, then by equipping over the bottled item during the cutscene of using it, you can use the content of the bottle without losing it. This allows infinite use of potions for exemple.
The most notable uses for this are:

Press the item and pause at the same time on pro controller mode. Switch to Gamepad then to Pro Controller again. Equip an item over the item you used when you paused. This performs item swapping. This is useful for:
By pressing the minus button to switch from the TV screen to the gamepad screen in a short timeframe during a loading transition, and pressing plus to pause on the very first frames after the loading, you can pause your game and have the ability to save. This works as long as there is no cutscene after the loading. One use of this is to skip the death animation cutscene after a loading.
This glitch can also be used to show your item and quest screens on the TV. Press minus to switch to gamepad mode then press minus again. By then pressing plus in a tight frame window then the pause menu on the TV will show the gamepad pause menu.
