Introduction to Editing & Applying new skills to Fritz Lang's 'M'

  1. 1. editing<br />
  2. 2. Match up-<br />story<br />how long a film is<br />type<br />a longer part of a film in one location<br />a number of different locations in a film; edited one after the other into a coherent piece<br />cutting a film<br />a film clip which has not been cut<br />a shot=<br />editing=<br />narrative=<br />sequence =<br />genre=<br />exhibition length=<br />scene=<br />
  3. 3. Editing<br />A film is shot on camera and then has to be edited. <br />Shooting and editing – impossible to discuss one without the other- NOT IN ISOLATION<br />
  4. 4. Why is editing so important?<br />Editing gives narrative shape and coherence to all the shots the film has recorded.<br />IT ALLOWS THE DIRECTOR TO CREATE MEANING<br />
  5. 5. A shot<br />A shot is an uninterrupted number of frames during which no cutting takes place. Within these frames the camera can pan, track, tilt dolly or be static.<br />As long as there is no break in location or instant change of camera position we are in the same shot.<br />
  6. 6. A scene- jumps!!! <br />A scene is a section of a film that attempts to create the illusion of uninterrupted action taking place within one continuous space or place.<br />Often highly edited, shift backwards, forwards between a series of viewpoints of different characters as an exchange between different characters for example.<br />
  7. 7. skilled editing…………<br />we accept editing cuts/ jumps because of our familiarity with narrative conventions in film<br />BUT ALSO skilled editors cover jumps ie shot / reverse shot. The editing moves when we want to hear the next character speak…editing pre-empts our spectator desire.<br />
  8. 8. a sequence<br />a sequence is a series of related scenes that for some clear and logical reason hold together as a coherent whole.<br />
