Film editing

by Julie Lambden | 30 December 2021
Hardback
Film editing is part of the long process of formulating, acquiring and presenting the images and sounds that make a film. The film editor makes decisions about the arrangement of the visual and aural material that they receive in the cutting room, not for their own satisfaction but to stimulate the participation of the cinema and television viewer. Three interrelated aspects, Emotion, Performance and Story, influence this decision-making. Combining history, practice, study and theory, Film Editing: Emotion, Performance, Story investigates why certain editorial decisions can encourage the emotional and narrative engagement of the audience. With full-color examples from features, short films and commercials, this book introduces a range of different editing styles and techniques to provide editors with a context on which to build their practice. Julie Lambden takes a discursive approach exploring the many options open to the editor whether this is the fine point at which to cut or the exact structuring of scenes within a whole film. Examples are closely analysed and discussed using frame grabs, graphics and plans. The book opens discussions on our psychological and cognitive behavior, and asks why certain picture and sound configurations can affect us emotionally. Interspersed with chapters on the fundamental tools of editing are studies of three editing strategies. Each is a method of persuasion that the editor can use to elicit a response in the audience, whether that is sympathy for a character or belief in the fictional world.
