  • How an Editor Can Shape and Sustain Story Tension

    How an Editor Can Shape and Sustain Story Tension

    February 17, 2012, 5:28 pm
    If a story that should be interesting is shaping up to be a bit boring, it is helpful to understand one of the key drivers behind an audience's interest: Dramatic Questions. A dramatic question is a question that implies an action and has something at stake. What does this have to do with editing? Usually...

      Film Editing A La Carte' Apprenticeship...DOA

      July 2, 2012, 3:07 pm
      Inexpensive and open-source technologies have meant fewer and fewer barriers of entry into video editing. But many feel that the rise of the one-man shop has led to the fall of the apprenticeship model. Gone are the days studying at the foot of the master, spending years learning what she does and why she does...

      A mountain climbing case-study in editing

      June 4, 2012, 9:43 am
      There's no denying the success of CBS's 60 Minutes. It's the quintessential news magazine show that many of us aspire to attain in our own video journalism work. And when I first saw Lara Logan's "The ascent of Alex Honnold" (13:19), a story about Alex's insane free solo climbs, I was captivated. In Logan's words: "He...

      First Time Filmmaker F-Up 12 - I Don't Care

      May 10, 2012, 3:15 pm
      The F-Up... If someone came up and offered you 10 to 50 percent of the funds for your movie, would you take it? Unfortunately, many new filmmakers wind up missing out on money for their film purely because "taxes" and thereby "tax incentives" sound boring or intimidating and they don't want to deal with that...

      Independent versus Studio Films

      May 9, 2012, 2:44 pm
      If you choose to freelance when first starting out, it might be easier for you to find work on smaller independent films. Many independents are non-union, and because the salaries and required levels of experience tend to be lower than on traditional studio/union shoots, it's a more plentiful source of employment. And working on non-union...

      Interviews with Great Editors: Anne Voase Coates

      April 24, 2012, 12:57 pm
      Anne Voase Coates initially wanted to be a film director, an aspiration frowned upon by her uncle, the famed British film entrepreneur J. Arthur Rank, who assumed she was only in it for the glamour and the good-looking actors. But Coates was persistent enough in her passion that Rank eventually found her a job at...
