The Importance of Editing in Storytelling
Language and flashing images
Editing is something I’ve personally loved to do, but that was mostly in the past and you can’t underestimate just how important it is to turning all that filmed material into a story that impacts the viewer. Alongside sound, effects, compositing, etc. the final process of gathering all of those elements and the editor(s) sitting down with the director to create the film, is something to be mastered and enjoyed.
Channel Criswell takes us into the world of film editing and it history, as well as delving into editing techniques and focusing on the emotional context.
