    to be the thing that makes magic Sherry Green Editing life Editing practices Editor s role Joy goes to the movies Grease Pencils to Light Pens to Touch Tablets The Technical Evolution of Motion Picture Editing December 12th 2012 No comments At last a diligent soul one John Buck has had the passion and taken the time to trace the track of editing from its manual scissors and glue past to its electronic mouse and keyboard present An Australian editor Buck writes up the recent fast track decades of technological advances as well as the build up to them over scores of years in two books under the title Timeline A History of Editing EditDroid Where Darth Vader appeared when you tried something it didn t like Volume 1 details the evolutions from 1898 1988 spanning the period from film nitrate and non to tape linear and non It contains interviews Buck made of major system inventor engineers Adrian Ettlinger and Andy Maltz Ediflex and others responsible for the development of analogue tape based systems such as CMX Convergence D Vision EditDroid and Montage Lightworks unique console Volume 2 covers the years 1988 to 2000 and the saga of how film and video systems paved the road to today s currents digital editing tools It too is chock full of interviews with the key players and prime movers of today s tools which include Avid Final Cut Pro iMovie Lightworks Media 100 and Premiere Buck s book includes the following splendid timeline decipherable by logo by the end of editing technology You can download a high medium or low res copy here We are indeed indebted to Buck for a contribution to film history that only an editor could make Sherry Green Editing practices History research Technical process Guest Blog December 4th 2012 No comments I received this article from a NY Film Academy teacher It s laudable because it explains to eager shooters the importance of editing and why it should be considered from the get go Thank you John and Anjum Bhardwaj who emailed me the request and article When the Cinematographer Thinks Like an Editor by John Loughlin Chair of the Cinematography Department The New York Film Academy As I work with cinematography students I sometimes have to break the news to them gently how they will not have the last say on the story To be sure cinematographers play a pivotal and significant role in the look feel and even meaning of a film But they necessarily collaborate with the other players the screenwriter and editor and the actors who help construct the story as well as the director who manages the story through every stage of the process I tell them that a film is written three times It is first written as a script It is rewritten when it is translated into shots during production And it is rewritten again when those shots are put into sequence during the edit The movie can become something very different during each of these rewrites And when a cinematographer sees her shots cut together in a way other than intended she can feel like the editor is doing it wrong ruining the story We face conflicting urges to take over and dictate the edit and to get frustrated and write the movie off Even though we have to learn to let our shots go when in the hands of the editor it doesn t mean we divorce our thoughts from the other parts of the filmmaking process Far from it In the same way that screenwriters need to write visually cinematographers should find themselves shooting like editors No crew member and no student is an island Staying connected to the evolving movie pays educational dividends that will make shooters more sophisticated and refined in shooting effective shots They are learning to shoot for the edit Although cinematographers are not expected to edit because editing is a different job I suggest that everyone benefits from editing his or her own projects while at school We learn how a movie comes together only in the editing room We begin to see what is meant by the language of a movie when shots work together or when they do not when shots are missing and it s too late to go back and get that insert And we see the object of a movie that what we deliver to the audience is a construct of specific parts that it is this shot for this long only and that is followed by specifically this next shot A close up of a face looking through a window followed by a high angle shot of someone walking through city streets tells a story The audience fills in the missing information at the edit between the shots and makes meaning Viewers draw a connection from the first shot to the second and experience something that is not physically in either of those shots maybe that the person in the window is spying on the person walking through the street Or waiting for him Or missing her How can you possibly photograph missing or betrayed or regret Yet somehow the audience sees those things So it is for all viewers Through editing we discover that we deliver a specific experience via a specialized language that of images in sequence Seeing this happen in the editing suite as cinematographers we begin to see what our shots really are elements of visual grammar And from that realization we can begin to learn the nuances of which shots will work in which story moments What if the shot of the person in the window is a profile What if it is over the shoulder Or a little bit tighter of a frame What if we use a long lens for the high angle shot of the person in the street Will it be more voyeuristic What about a wide angle lens What if it s not a high

    or both but in either case allow for easy updates as most schedules can and do change Since postproduction takes place at the end of the show If it s running behind or the schedule gets shortened editorial gets pushed to work harder and longer d Know the digital system you ll be cutting on Cutting digitally requires a lot of general knowledge You need to understand time code and video tape have solid computer and internet skills be able to create VFX on third party software preferably and have experience with film if you re hired on a film show not to mention know how to edit Working on a digital system even when you re totally comfortable is a constant learning process Just when you become familiar with the current software there s an upgrade or new version and more to learn No matter how experienced you are with an editing software don t assume everything on your system is in working order unless you own the system Put your system through its paces by checking out everything that you will be doing ingesting and outputting to tape mixing sound recording with the mic making DVDs importing from CDs etc You don t want to wait until dailies are flying through the door to find out your deck isn t reading time code or a channel on your mixer is muted Secure an expert friend or system guru you can call on when a technical breakdown is beyond your expertise so you can keep your project running smoothly If you re picking out a system for your show make sure that it can perform what your project requires fit your workflow and achieve your finishing format and that it is compatible with all equipment tape deck servers or another editing systems third party etc that you ll need to interact with This concludes the Imagineering part of visualizing your film My next post will alert you to the more mundane engineering requirements that are part of envisioning your film Sherry Green Editing practices Editor s role Technical process Visual FX editing Editor s Eye Visualizing Your Film from the Postproduction POV Part 2 November 3rd 2012 1 comment Here s the second part of this four part series on the magical imagineering aspects and grounded engineering requirements of envisioning your film from an editorial standpoint MovieMaker magazine will publish part of this series as an article in their December 4 issue as part of their annual filmmaking guide IMAGINEERING 2 Visualize your audio and plan One misconception that many people in the film business have is that if you want great sound in your movie you don t really need to think about sound early on Randy Thom sound designer and mixer How to Train Your Dragon The Incredibles The Right Stuff and Return of the Jedi To produce the best sounding film or video anticipate how your show will sound budget for sound and record your desired audio during the shoot This way you ve got the sound you want for when your picture comes together audio wise during sound editing in sound editing and the mix Create a sound vision Imagine what your viewer will hear Think about the different scenes or parts of your show and how you want them to sound light and sprightly cheery with a sinister threat in the air painful but upbeat etc You might start by imagining each character or subject as an instrument or a theme What would they sound like What tune would they play Next envision how scenes or sections will sound as purely musical themes The goal is to get an idea of the subtle and grand tones of your film and consider how sonics can support them if you encourage the sounds of the characters the things and the places in your film to inform your decisions in all the other film crafts then your movie may just grow to have a voice beyond anything you might have dreamed Randy Thom Like picture images sound and music elements contribute to the story Sound augments POV sequences helps put the noir in noir and is the backbone of many a dream and fantasy sequence Sounds words and music can inform a character prompting an action or reaction or revealing overt or underlying emotions Ensure that each piece of sound and music enhances and supports your story It s not always a matter of see a bird hear a chirp effect Sound can represent something or someone unseen off screen and comment on or deepen a scene Yes Routinely sound and music bound from the backseat to drive the story Think of the ways the off screen kaboom of a bomb or swoosh of an advancing tsunami affects a town of people or recall how Rick reacts to hearing As Time Goes By in Casablanca Hitchcock believed that To describe a sound accurately one has to imagine its equivalent in dialogue and gave this illustration from a scene in The Birds The flock gathers surveys and attacks saying Now we ve got you where we want you Here we come We don t have to scream in triumph or in anger This is going to be a silent murder The Birds is noteworthy because it relied heavily on sounds there was no score to make its farfetched plot plausible The buzz words today for sound are organic real and natural The Hurt Locker which won the 2009 Academy awards for sound editing and sound mixing exemplifies this trend A memorable scene of GIs on a night search in Iraq depended entirely on the bed of sound the editors built Avatar the runner up for the Oscar that year embodies the other end of the sonic spectrum Its audio palette paints an imaginary planet where the synthesized sounds are anything but real What these two sound styles have in common however is crucial They both aurally plant the

    is to get material to edit And that s exactly true Editing is where you make the film It s a very beautiful thing I shoot to cut Alexander Payne The Descendants Sideways About Schmidt Election There is a brotherhood in filmmaking between the film editor and the film director It s a brotherhood of trust and interdependence and it is a sanctuary It is for me where the filmmaking really gets started and it s where I feel most comfortable Steven Spielberg Editing is the voice of the film and also a deeply collaborative art Out of all processes I love editing the most James Cameron The next post will continue the countdown to numero uno Sherry Green Editing life Editing screenwriting Editing practices Editor s role Assignment Dollars One Student s Successful Quest to Create a PSA on the Environment for his Generation September 10th 2012 No comments Note This video came to me by way of the sister of the filmmaker who is my nephew But you needn t be a family member to have Joy blog about your project So send me the links and let me know about your editing trials and tribulations along the way Anytime Steve McCord a sophomore at Houghton College took a digital video class last fall and his professor made an assignment Create an environmental video pertaining to our generation McCord emailed me Personally I was super sick of all the lame videos that guilt you into action by showing you pictures of pretty sunflowers I tried to stay away from that but looking back I inevitably ended up doing it which annoys me but yeah c est la vie He adds I wanted to try to reveal the Oz behind the curtain hence the FCP shot and say Look you ve seen these videos and as great as they might be it s still your choice on what you re going to do Check out the results yourselves Writing and Shooting How did McCord get started I wrote a speech thing for my actors to say then took them out in a random part of the woods and filmed them Initially I only had one guy in the whole movie but then after a class critique half way through the project I got some feedback saying that there needed to be more people to give it more of a voices of a generation type of feel Good advice class Reshooting McCord returned to the woods with four more students I got through three of them but then I ran out of daylight so I had to wait till the next day Lo and behold it snowed that night so then I had to wait for another couple days for it all to melt or else it wouldn t look continuous Editing Picture McCord reports it was fairly straight forward to begin with I just laid it out to the script He used FCP Soundtrack Pro and 27 iMacs After I laid it out I figured no one would want to listen to some random guys talking to you for 2 minutes So I tried to add some variety with the text Still he wasn t happy with how the lighting turned out but found that when you are shooting outdoors like that you kinda gotta take what you got I tried my best with the color correction in post but it didn t quite have the effect that I wanted Editing Sound McCord confesses That class was the first time that I really learned how to do audio correction so looking back I wish I had done it first rather than go through each clip to send to soundtrack pro for noise reduction It would have saved a lot of time I had this buzz from my lapel mic that I wasn t a huge fan of but thankfully was able to get most of it out of there then send it back to FCP Contest McCord submitted the video to the National Association of Evangelicals Creation Care Video contest around the first week in December then got notified in the last week of February that he had won What was the prize I won 1000 he states and I plan to use that money to reinvest in equipment Keep up the good work Steve And let me hear from the rest of you Sherry Green Editing practices Joy views your film Technical process Editors and Actors The Real Story September 4th 2012 1 comment The image from the last post is a popular misconception of what editors do to actors leave them on the cutting room floor in a heap of film Wrong on so many levels We cut digitally not on film these days We are the actor s best friend more below While an editor may participate in the decision to drop a character from a show it s the director producer or client that makes the decision Before I elaborate on 2 and 3 let me say that this is a serious widely held misconception It cost me some money once In the 1990s an insurance company upped my premium because of this entirely erroneous belief The company was convinced that an actor left on the cutting room floor would sue the editor No matter how much I protested the factual basis of this prejudice and the agent called his boss I could not dissuade them When I was able to switch companies I did How Editors help Actors Understanding the core issue of the characters finding it in a look creating it in a moment is my joy in the editing process Editor Nina Gilberti In the course of a show the editor seldom meets the actors or interviewees Therefore to an editor an actor is a character an interviewee is a subject The editor deals objectively with each character or interviewee
