The Technique of Film and Video Editing, Fourth Edition: by Ken Dancyger

By Ken Dancyger

This ebook presents an outstanding evaluate of the background of enhancing - from its origins to the place we're now. it is usually a considerable cross-section of particular genres: motion, comedy, documentary, and so on. it is real, as different reports have mentioned, that the examples are typically biased towards older motion pictures. i did not have an issue with this for the main half. a lot of those motion pictures are first-class and it makes for the correct excuse for a wet Sunday Netflix fest.

Dancyger's publication can be powerful at the thought of modifying. i did not trust all his propositions, yet they definitely obtained me puzzling over my very own modifying initiatives and the enhancing means of motion pictures i like. the place the ebook falls a section brief is the sensible facet. I wasn't looking forward to a handbook, however the e-book may well use a number of extra genuine lifestyles examples and useful suggestions - particularly within the documentary chapters.

One very last thing: this is not a ebook to be learn by itself. I received the main from Dancyger's examples whilst I watched the flicks he refers to. when you do not borrow, purchase or hire the films and watch the referenced motion pictures you are going to fail to spot a big component.
