4/18: Arguing through Editing

A man sits in front of a computer keyboard with 3 monitors in front of him and a large screen TV above the monitors.

This is what real life editing looks like!

While having a good script and competent filming is important, the process of editing is what really creates the relationships and messages that you want to send in your video argument.  Today’s reading will help you not only think about how to stage your filming to produce the best shots to choose from, but also to think about how to put those shots together in a visually interesting way.

To prepare for class:

  • Read the excerpt from “The Relation of Shot to Shot: Editing” chapter from Film Art: An Introduction (in ELMS).
  • Submit your PSA Project Pitch in ELMS.
    • Another resource to help with your storyboards can be found here.
