Editing in action

  1. 1. EDITING IN ACTION By Melissa Minshull
  2. 2. Pace ■ Editing is fast paced ■ This is to create a sense of urgency ■ The fast paced editing also helps to build tension and suspense ■ This can be mixed with one or two scenes with a slow pace ■ This is done to reflect that the hero of the film is at a low point or is struggling/feeling down ■ It can also be used to emphasise what is happening on screen
  3. 3. EditingTechniques Used ■ Jump cuts – Shows the passing of time ■ Cross cutting – Shows two things going on at the same time. Often used in chase scenes or group fights ■ Cut away - Shows the characters reaction to something, helps further plot ■ Match on action – Shows the same action continuously from different angles. Draws focus onto specific items or movements that are important to the plot ■ Elliptical editing – Removes unnecessary parts of journeys/actions to keep the audience interested and in suspense ■ Rhythmic editing – cutting in time to the music to create energy in the piece
  4. 4. Music and Sound Effects ■ Fast paced music helps build energy and urgency ■ Common sound effects –Clocks ticking and footsteps. Shows urgency builds tension. ■ Sounds of violence are also common in action films to help bring realism to scenes containing violence ■ However before a big event in the film slow drawn out music may play to build tension and draw in the audience
