Film Language: Editing explanation examples and worksheets.

Published on

A long and detailed look at what editing is in Film and how it helps to not only present a story to the audience but how it functions on a technical level. The presentation is broadly split into two areas: Pace and Transitions. Each section contains a definition, a range of examples (many of which are gifs and videos which obviously won't play on here) and some activities for students to engage with.

Film Language: Editing explanation examples and worksheets.

  1. 1. editing
  2. 2. editing:Editing is the way in which the story is placed into order or the way in which the narrative is presented to the audience. As film students we need to be able to identify how editing has been used in a film and what affect it has on the audience.
  3. 3. editing: we are going to be looking at two main areas: pace and style (transitions)
  4. 4. editing: pace
  5. 5. pace: Pace of editing is when we see the screen change from one shot to another. how quickly (or slowly) this happens is known as the ‘pace’ of the scene. this can be easily seen by how often (or not) the shots change.
  6. 6. how quick (or slow) is the pace here? what do we learn? how are we supposed to feel?
  7. 7. how quick (or slow) is the pace here? what do we learn? how are we supposed to feel?
  8. 8. What is the pace like for clip 1? How can we tell? What affect does it have on the audience? What does it make us do or pay attention? pace:
  9. 9. What is the pace like for clip 2? How can we tell? What affect does it have on the audience? What does it make us do or pay attention? pace:

  12. 12. amazing editing video: pay attention to the descriptions of editing!
  13. 13. editing: style
  14. 14. style: The choices made by a director and editor will help to create the editing style. Part of this is the pace chosen and created. However, there are techniques such as transitions and cuts that can be used to create style.
  15. 15. transitions/cuts:jump cut fade-out dissolve cut away wipe match-on action graphic match
  16. 16. jump cut fade-out dissolve cut away wipe match-on action graphic match transitions/cuts: includes: montage, cross cutting, smash cut
  17. 17. jump cut: a jump cut is where the action seems to jump from one scene or moment. This is also known as a straight cut: there is no transition.
  18. 18. jump cut: refer to a straight cut if the action just cuts from one thing another in the same scene, a jump cut if it jumps from one scene to another.
  19. 19. jump cut:
  20. 20. jump cut: refer to a straight cut if the action just cuts from one thing another in the same scene.
  21. 21. jump cut: refer to it as a jump cut if it jumps from one scene to another. this is also known as cross- cutting.
  22. 22. jump cut= cross cutting
  23. 23. jump cut: why does this work? your brain fills in the gaps. you make meaning without being told what’s actually happening between the gaps.
  24. 24. jump cut:Jumping between action or moments in time also allows films to use montages. these show a variety of short sections from various moments in time, usually to time passing or progress being made. They are often set to music and help to show people training, the passing of time to a change that happens over time.
  25. 25. montage

  27. 27. jump cut: one way this can be explained is by the kuleshov effect:

  40. 40. fade out:
  41. 41. fade out:SNATCH / OLDBOY A jump cut is where the action seems to jump from one scene or moment. This is also known as a straight cut: there is no transition.
  42. 42. transitions/cuts:jump cut fade-out dissolve cut away wipe match-on action graphic match
  43. 43. fade out: a fade out is when the picture is gradually replaced by black screen or any other solid colour. Traditionally, fade outs have been used to conclude movies. Fades are used sparingly because they imply the end of a major story segment. Fades are also utilized when allowing the audience time to catch their breath after an intense sequence.
  44. 44. fade out:
  45. 45. fade out: PSYCHO
  46. 46. transitions/cuts:jump cut fade-out dissolve cut away wipe match-on action graphic match
  47. 47. dissolve: dissolves happen when one shot gradually replaces by the next. One disappears as the following appears. For a few seconds, they overlap, and both are visible. Commonly used to signify the passage of time.
  48. 48. dissolve:
  49. 49. dissolve:
  50. 50. fade out: RETURN OF THE JEDI CITIZEN KANE
  51. 51. transitions/cuts:jump cut fade-out dissolve cut away wipe match-on action graphic match
  52. 52. cut away: As the name implies, in the basic cutaway, the filmmaker is moving from the action to something else, and then coming back to the action. Cutaways are used to edit out boring shots or add action to a sequence by changing the pace of the footage. these get used a LOT in family guy.
  53. 53. cut away: where the camera cuts away. either to show someone is looking at something or for the sake of the audience!
  54. 54. cut away:
  55. 55. fade out: WALL-E
  56. 56. transitions/cuts:jump cut fade-out dissolve cut away wipe match-on action graphic match
  57. 57. wipe: Wipes are dynamic. They happen when one shot pushes the other off frame. George Lucas deliberately used them throughout the Star Wars series. they usually happen quite quickly but are a useful way of seeing where the action goes from and then to.
  58. 58. wipe:
  59. 59. fade out: STAR WARS
  60. 60. transitions/cuts:jump cut fade-out dissolve cut away wipe match-on action graphic match
  61. 61. match-on-action: is a cut that connects two different views of the same action at the same moment in the movement. By carefully matching the movement across the two shots, filmmakers make it seem that the motion continues uninterrupted. For a real match on action, the action should begin in the first shot and end in the second shot.
  62. 62. match-on-action:
  63. 63. match-on-action:
  64. 64. fade out: THE MATRIX
  65. 65. transitions/cuts:jump cut fade-out dissolve cut away wipe match-on action graphic match
  66. 66. graphic match: this cut helps to show two otherwise disconnected scenes by establishing a relationship between them. this is done By ending one shot with a frame containing the same compositional elements (shape, color, size, etc.) as the beginning frame of the next shot.
  67. 67. graphic match
  68. 68. graphic match
  69. 69. fade out: PSYCHO
  70. 70. match(graphic)cut
  71. 71. practical exercise: use the worksheet to make a note of the editing style. begin by noting/describing the pace with evidence to explain why you’d describe the pace as being slow/ fast.
  72. 72. pick out the cuts (and/or transitions) what do we learn? how are we supposed to feel? how do the cuts help up to communicate to the audience?
  73. 73. advanced:
  74. 74. practical exercise:
  75. 75. slower version:
  76. 76. this example is quite tricky: watch a few times and stick to picking out just a few examples of transitions, perhaps 4 or 5.
  77. 77. practical exercise: use the worksheet to make a note of the editing style. begin by noting/describing the pace with evidence to explain why you’d describe the pace as being slow/ fast.
  78. 78. practical exercise: then, watch carefully and note down what type of transitions are used and when.
  79. 79. practical exercise: finally, use the box at the bottom of the page to explain, in full sentences, what the editing is like, with examples and an explanation of why you think it’s like that.
