    • 3. Editing What is it…? - Write your own definition for video editing… - Video editing can be described as the process of piecing together raw footage, which has been captured on a video camera, in order to create a complete video product. - Editing itself is a powerful tool. It can manipulate time, space and interpretation within a media product (e.g. films, television programmes, radio programmes, newspaper articles, video games, etc).
    • 4. Editing Key themes relating to editing… - Storyline - Narrative * What is the difference between these two key terms…? - Storyline = The plot. - Narrative = The arrangement of events that reveal and complete the storyline.
    • 5. Editing Storyline and narrative… - Open-ended storyline - Closed storyline - Linear narrative - Non-linear narrative
    • 6. Editing Storyline and narrative… - Open-ended = A storyline that is left incomplete. This could be to continue the story in a subsequent programme, or to allow audiences to complete the storyline using their own imagination. - Closed = A storyline that is left complete, with no questions left unanswered (regarding the storyline). - Linear = Events, of the storyline, that unfold in a chronological order. - Non-linear = Events, of the storyline, that unfold in a non-chronological order.
    • 7. Editing The principles of editing 1. Storytelling - Editing is used to piece together scenes in a (usually) logical sequence to tell a story. 2. Combination of shots - Editors will combine a mixture of shot types and angles in order to draw in the viewer and establish settings, feelings and relationships. - A combination of shots should be edited together in a logical order. For example, LONG SHOT  MID-SHOT  CLOSE-UP  EXTREME CLOSE-UP. A combination of shots (good and bad) in Fist of Fury (1972) Dir: Lo Wei

    • 9. Editing The principles of editing 3. Creating pace - In order to create a sense of pace or speed within a TV programme or film, the editing techniques used must match the sounds or music used within the video. Taio Cruz – Break Your Heart (2009) Creating pace in a music video Framelines TV – Fast and Slow Cutting
    • 10. Editing The principles of editing 4. The 180o rule - This rule states that once two (or more) actors have been established on a certain side of the screen, then they must remain on that side throughout the edit. - This rule applies to camera work and editing when filming two or more characters (during interviews, interrogations, conversations, etc.). Framelines TV – The 180o Rule
    • 11. Breaking the 180o Rule The Shining (1980) Dir: Stanley Kubrick Lèon: The Professional (1994) Dir: Luc Besson

    • 22. Editing Editing techniques Match cut An action that is shown in one scene will then be repeated in a similar fashion in the next scene. Graphic (match) cut An object / shape in one shot, ‘transforms’ into something similar in the next shot. A graphic (match) cut with a dissolve Match cuts from the John Lewis 150th anniversary advert (2014)
    • 23. Editing Editing techniques Shot-reverse-shot Character A looks at character B. The shot then cuts to character B looking at character A. Then back to the original shot. Two subjects talking Shot Reverse Shot
    • 24. Editing Editing transitions Fade out / fade in A gradual transition from one shot to another; one darkens and the next brightens. Dissolve One scene fades out while another fades in over the top of it – the two scenes mix into each other (see the graphic match cut example). Wipe The subsequent scene wipes over the prior scene. Wipes from Star Wars A fade up during the opening scene of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001)
    • 25. Editing Editing transitions Superimposition One image is placed on top of another. Slow motion / fast motion Slowing down or speeding up time or an action. Ellipsis The editing out of a period of time or series of events, leaving the viewer to fill in the narrative using their own imagination. Superimposition in The Lion King (1994) Dir: Roger Allers & Rob Minkoff Slow motion in The Matrix (1999) Dir: Andy & Laurence Wachowski An ellipsis in Bruce Almighty (2003) Dir: Tom Shadyac
