Editing lesson

  1. 1. AS Media Studies<br />Unit G322a<br />Editing<br />
  2. 2. Lesson ObjectivesBy the end of the session you should be able to:<br />List at 4 elements that we look for when analysing editing .<br />Identify the edits used in a TV drama clip and discuss the effect they have.<br />Some of you will be able to relate the use of editing in a TV drama clip to the representations that are constructed. <br />
  3. 3. What are we looking for when analysing editing in a clip?<br />Task 1:<br />Write down as many elements, that come under editing, as you can think of (2 mins)<br />
  4. 4. What are we looking for when analysing editing in a clip?<br />Order of shots <br />Juxtaposition<br />Continuity?<br />Transitions <br />Shot duration<br />Pace and rhythm<br />Special effects<br />You need to be able to discuss how these technical elements help create meaning.<br />

  6. 6. Continuity<br />Continuity editing<br />Cutting shots to tell a story with narrative continuity, helping the viewer make sense of the action by implying spatial relationships and ensuring smooth flow from shot to shot. <br />Continuity techniques:<br />Establishing shot (establishes the space in which action is to happen)<br />The 180º rule (ensures that the same space is described in each shot)<br />Shot/reverse shot<br />Eyeline match (e.g. character looks off-screen, next shot shows us what they see)<br />Match on action (character begins to move in one shot, we see continuation of the same movement in the next shot)<br />Realism - edit is invisible so action appears real rather than constructed.<br />
  7. 7. Non-Continuity<br />Montage – giving information in compressed form – can come under…<br />Non-continuity editing – Continuity is broken and construction is more apparent. Meaning often created through juxtaposition and metaphor shot inserts.<br />
  8. 8. Transitions<br />The process of cutting from one shot to another usually involves a simple straight cut. However there are other means of transition available to a film editor<br />Fade to black<br />Dissolve/cross fade<br />Wipe<br />
  9. 9. Fade – the preceding shot fades into black from which the following shot emerges.<br />
  10. 10. Fade – the preceding shot fades into black from which the following shot emerges.<br />
  11. 11. Fade – the preceding shot fades into black from which the following shot emerges.<br />
  12. 12. Dissolve or cross fade – the preceding shot merges into the following shot, resulting in the two shots being superimposed. The longer the dissolve the more noticeable the superimposition becomes.<br />
  13. 13. Dissolve or cross fade – the preceding shot merges into the following shot, resulting in the two shots being superimposed. The longer the dissolve the more noticeable the superimposition becomes.<br />
  14. 14. Dissolve or cross fade – the preceding shot merges into the following shot, resulting in the two shots being superimposed. The longer the dissolve the more noticeable the superimposition becomes.<br />
  15. 15. Shot duration/pace<br />The duration of a shot will usually reflect the narrative context. <br />Generally speaking short shot duration conveys action and urgency (say in a chase sequence). Click here for a chase sequence from Die Another Day. See if you can count the number of shots!<br />Whilst long duration conveys intensity and intimacy within the narrative, it allows us to focus upon facial expression and other aspects of mise en scene which would otherwise be missed. <br />
  16. 16. Some editing devices<br />Parallel editing - crosscutting between different locations can convey the impression that two or more events are occurring simultaneously. <br />split screen – where the frame is split into sections so that we can see different events occurring at the same time. This technique was used on the TV series 24.<br />
  17. 17. Editing controls what we see and when<br />When analysing a clip also consider how editing techniques are used to control:<br />What information is revealed to or hidden from<br />the characters<br />the audience<br />
  18. 18. Task 2<br />Analyse the editing in the following clips:<br />Opening of The Devil’s Whore<br />Opening of Hollyoaks<br />(Use your notes to work through each element)<br />Be ready to feedback to the rest of the class<br />
  19. 19. Task 2<br />Find someone to work with who has the same colour name card as you (somebody with a white card needs to volunteer to work by themselves or as a three).<br />Log on to a mac (using media & password) and then log on to estream.<br />If you have a white name card, search for ‘Devil’s Whore’ and choose the opening scene in chapters.<br />If you have a green name card, search for representation in TV Drama and select the clip ‘sexuality in Hollyoaks’ from the playlist.<br />You have 15 minutes.<br />
