pans or dollies faster or slower in one shot than the other Sound The wording volume or pacing of the dialogue or sound changes from one shot to the next Mismatches due to department or actor Pay attention to these issues too but often you can get some help from your Post House during the post editing phase for example color grading will resolve lighting problems Mismatch Example Lighting make up hair or wardrobe Eyeglasses on in one shot and off in the next Position of limbs or props A telephone in the left hand in one shot and the right hand in the next Weather It s rainy in one shot and sunny in another Cutting around the mismatch To assuage a bad match make the most sensible least discernible cut How to do that Here are five main ways to avoid a mismatched edit Cut away to another shot and then back Cut earlier or later where there is a better match Cut to a tight close up overhead shot or an insert shot Add a quick flash frame frame or two of white between cuts Add a short transitional effect such as a dissolve or wipe If the mismatch is in screen direction there are numerous tried and true remedies Cut to a shot coming straight at or away from the audience Cut out of the first shot when the person s eyes pass the edge of the frame on the left Then cut to the second shot approximately six frames before the person s eyes enter the frame This allows the audience s eyes to adjust and makes the person appear to be moving in real time Reverse the shot When you encounter a sound mismatch equalize the volume or cross fade to balance disparate volumes or sounds To ameliorate wording and pacing problems find an acceptable cut point make an overlap a k a an L cut or edit in a cutaway With experience you ll make all these fixes reflexively and come up with tricks of your own Conclusion To read the complete article as well as my second article Facing the Footage How to avoid frustration and wasted time by editing confidently from the first frame read the

Burkell in this month s MovieMaker magazine Incidentally the hard copy of this issue of the mag contains two articles by moi which I will feature in upcoming posts Sherry Green Uncategorized Thelma and Hugo December 12th 2011 No comments After a long lapse an excuse to write about Thelma Schoonmaker in a category of her own among living U S editors due to the article about her in the latest Editor s Guild magazine Schoonmaker began collaborating with Scorsese on Woodstock and has received three Oscars on movies they made together Raging Bull The Departed and The Aviator Hugo their latest effort is certainly worthy of winning them more accolades If she gets the Oscar for Hugo she will break the record and become the first editor to win four Oscars In addition to helping bring three Oscars to Schoonmaker Scorsese also brought one Michael into her life That would be Michael Powell from the UK who became her husband Powell directed such venerated movies as The Red Shoes which Scorsese and Schoonmaker restored a few years ago The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp which she s restoring during her off time and Peeping Tom Read the Guild article to learn more about how Powell strongly influenced Schoonmaker Scorsese and Hugo Here are the parts of the article that impressed me the most from Schoonmaker and Scorsese on their first foray into 3 D Schoonmaker on 3 D when I m working alone I work in 2 D because my two work monitors with my timeline are in 2 D but when I m working with Marty Scorsese in the afternoon I put on my 3 D flip up lenses and we watch it in the RealD format In terms of cutting it was actually not that much different frankly We don t have a lot of quick jumpy cutting Some shots have to be adjusted every day really in the digital lab that was built for us There was someone checking of how each of the cameras was laying down the shot But it wasn t so complicated for me Scorsese Schoonmaker don 3 D flip ups to view Hugo on location in London

film industry twist What would you tell people Let Joy know Here s the intro to my list Full list in my next blog post Top Ten Reasons Why it s a Great Time to Be a Filmmaker With four decades in and

    Expanding on Hendricks in his article Frankenbytes and the integrity of your edit writer filmmaker Edward J Delaney opines The term is relatively new and mainly comes out of the great oxymoron of the last decade Reality shows which are conceived cast choreographed and cut until even a shred of reality is gone Barbara Nicolosi a writer on four reality shows blogs about how and why Frankenbites are created Let s say a vegetarian isn t vegetarian enough Or a minority isn t sassy enough Or a Christian isn t born again y The story department simply tells the editors that they need a franken byte a sound byte pieced together from hundreds of hours of interviews Hidden under B roll footage the editors can create a sentence that never came out of the person s mouth Controversy The darker definitions expose the controversy When an editor manipulates an interviewee s utterance into something unintended unsaid or worse the editor has indeed made a monster of reality While there is no Hippocratic oath of filmmaking the editor has also most certainly crossed an ethical line Nicolosi and others worry that this will spread to other non fiction forms namely documentary I agree Don t confabulate stories You sell out the material your interviewees your profession and yourself If you ve been pressured to do this let Joy know What s kosher Cheating dialogue is nothing new for editors We do it reflexively on all genres of fiction and non fiction shows Not all reality editors cross the ethical line Coleite told me that tons of cheating goes on in reality show editing And explained this occurs Because you re paying attention to the veracity and continuity of the story The late great sound supervisor Kay Rose once told me that the sound editor on Some Like it Hot pieced Marilyn

first job and all that follow It again intersperses tips and advice from editors that I interviewed First job Don t give up Be open minded Realize that it s harder to find work than to do the work Barry Cohen online editor You re afraid you ll never get started but there are actually some advantages to your position You are no threat to anyone you don t know enough to compete This means that people will try to help you People feel good helping someone get a job And someday you ll pay it forward yourself The flip side is that you can be taken advantage of Many of us have had that job from Hades mostly because in our eagerness and need to succeed we let someone push us around I hope this doesn t happen to you If you do find yourself in a bad situation evaluate if it s worth staying If it isn t get out as gracefully and wholly intact as possible Chances are they probably already have a bad rep and leaving won t hurt you If you do decide to stay focus on something positive the credit on your resume future contacts skills learned getting in the union or the paycheck Places to contact These are places you should be tracking down Corporations with in house production and postproduction departments Government film agencies Networks Post houses Production companies independent large and small Special effects and title houses Studios Type of jobs to start with If you get a job as an apprentice or assistant editor volunteer to cut anything scenes promo gag reel teaser bumper the director s wedding video etc It will not only give you knowledge and confidence but it may be worthy of putting on your reel and resume as examples of things you ve edited If your work is not used in the show do not pretend it was Since digital systems allow infinite versions play away and practice cutting to your heart s content Show your work to other assistants to the editor to anyone who will give you good feedback And who knows you may get to cut part of the show or a director or producer will take a shine to you and hire you for another project I ve seen it happen At the very least you ll improve your editing skills and system knowledge Type of project to start on I took every single job I could find I probably edited 50 60 reels of film hair stylists I would do anything Dean Gonzalez music video editor Anything Just get hired There are so many types of editing projects animation awards shows commercials corporate films documentaries educational films features government films infomercials IMAX movies music concert shows music videos promos PSAs trailers and
