Editing - The Art Of Joining Arts

Editing - Joining arts

About Two Weeks Ago,My College-mates Reunion was held...The party was going well.

One Of My Friends Started the Camp-Fire Conversation with a phrase like "How Was your Cut and Join Job going"?

I Answered that it was nice...

Editing : 

Yes, It is a Cut and Join Job.But Cut out the Bad things and Joining the Un-Related ones and gives  the Audience a Feeling With Things That don't have Feelings.

ACTUALLY ,Everything is an Editing.

Nothing in this world have become Something without the part called Editing.Like,
Browny Asians are in  China,India,.......While the Other Pale Whites are in British, France,......Black In Africa and Pinks are in East......Thats the Editing Work Of Earth Creator.


Basics :

There Are Different Kinds Of Cuts To Fast,Slow up,Freeze the Emotion,Make The Forms,Follow the Killer,Clean Douchebags and Create the Scene in turn Whole Film. 

Standard Cut - Cut Out Ends And Join Clip Together.

Jump Cuts - Used to Forward Speed.(eg.montages)

Cross Dissolve - Passage of Time/Telling Multiple Stories

Fade In/Out - Passage Time/Night to Day Switch (If Not used properly,will be a jarring)

L/J Cuts - Used With Audio Of Two Clips

Cutting On Action - Cut at Any Point Of Action Thing (Not a Cutaway)

Cut Away - Patch/Band Aid To the Thing (Thing - angle/audio/....)

Cross Cut - Two Shots with different Place and Time (eg.phone calls)

Match Cut - Make The Continuity In Unrelated different scenes.

Smash Cut - Immediate Cuts Of Several Shots.(Far More Than Jump cut and Montage)

Invisible Cut - Invisible a Cut with Things in Frame 

And Forget All the Trash and make New ones...

Regards : 

A Good Editor Can Save A Poorly Directed Film.

A Poor Editor Can Damage Even The Finest Work Of The Director.

Editor Is Like A Jesus Turning Bad To Good,Turn/Shapen The Good.

 "... Editing is a lot about patience and discipline and just banging away at something, turning off the machine and going home at night because you're frustrated and depressed, and then coming back in the morning to try again." - Thelma Scoonmaker (Raging bull,Departed,Casino)

"...Film editing is described as an art or skill, the only art that is unique to cinema, separating filmmaking from other art forms that preceded it, although there are close parallels to the editing process in other art forms such as poetry and novel writing. Film editing is often referred to as the "invisible art"[1] because when it is well-practiced, the viewer can become so engaged that he or she is not aware of the editor's work".- Wikipedia series on Filmmaking.

"...Overall picture emerges when all the little pieces have been fit together,Each piece is a shot,When put together properly, the viewer sees the whole picture and not just the pieces" - Editing Key


"...A camera,dialouge,character,music,artist and every crafts can Only Work On It's path associated to the Film.But Editing can't !!!.It Have to Take care and gives the aspect of the whole crafts in one film without affecting the feel/theme of film as well as the good work of other crafts".-Cinemaathoughts 



In the meantimes,there Film-makers/Directors also did the job editing that they don't want the other one to did it.

Akira kurasawa ,Bahram Beyzi and Coen brothers.

In 60s a murder occupy the newspapers and all the media-works,But its not a Reallife murder.A Psycho(1960) Murder by Hitchcock.There is not a great work on the shooting spot (bunch of shots),but in the Editing.It is achieved by Kuleshov effect.The Scene Had 42 Shots Which explains the brutal and horror of murdering a Lady with a knife,Without showing the Actual sequence of Murdering.Even though we comes to the feel of one is murdered hard in the shower while bathing peacefully.And That is Editing.

Make Something From Nothing is The Great Phrase We Regard On Editing.It Suits So Well.
