      Editing is Mind Control for the Masses

      January 21, 2009, 7:04 am
      In a study released in mid-2008, neuroscientists noted that certain styles of motion pictures are capable of exerting "considerable control over brain activity." In the study that used fMRI imaging to study neocortex response, researchers found that the level of control exerted was linked directly to the film’s editing and directing style.

      Film Editing's Affect on the Brain

      January 21, 2009, 7:02 am
      Using advanced functional imaging methods, New York University neuroscientists have found that certain motion pictures can exert considerable control over brain activity. Moreover, the impact of films varies according to movie content, editing, and directing style. Because the study, which appears in Projections: The Journal for Movies and Mind, offers a quantitative neuroscientific assessment of the impact of different styles of filmmaking on viewers' brains, it may serve as a valuable...

      John Lyons Plays Truth or Dare

      January 21, 2009, 7:00 am
      John Lyons is not the kind of editor to remain satisfied working in solely one genre. After working as an assistant editor on such wildly diverse movies as Wag the Dog, Sphere, The Siege, Keeping the Faith and Gosford Park, he made an impressive transition to editor on Savage Grace, starring Julianne Moore. The latest proof of Lyons’ editing prowess can be seen in Adam Salky’s Dare, which premieres at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. The movie follows three vastly different teenagers...

      Editor Cara Silverman on The Greatest

      January 20, 2009, 6:59 am
      For The Greatest, the new Pierce Brosnan/Susan Sarandon drama in competition at this year's Sundance Film Festival, editor Cara Silverman found a new way of working — based in Los Angeles while the production shot in New York, Silverman let her assistant run the Avid Adrenaline while she cut footage on a laptop loaded with the software version of Avid Media Composer. Being untethered to a heavy desktop system has a freeing effect on creativity, too (especially on low-budget films, which...

      The Eastwood Sanction

      January 19, 2009, 6:57 am
      Clint Eastwood has a fondness for editing––and editors. According to the filmmaker, he has worked with only a half-dozen editors in the 38 years he’s been directing motion pictures, starting with Carl Pingitore, who passed away in January 2008. The two met on Don Siegel’s 1971 film The Beguiled, and Pingitore edited Play Misty for Me, Eastwood’s feature directorial debut, that same year. It was the only film they did together.

      The Emotional Rhythm of Joel Cox and Gary Roach

      January 19, 2009, 6:56 am
      French composer Maurice Ravel said, "We should always remember that sensitiveness and emotion constitute the real content of a work of art." Few words better express the filmmaking vision of iconic actor, director, producer and composer Clint Eastwood, a vision that is realized in no small part by Eastwood’s picture editors––Oscar winner Joel Cox, A.C.E., and Gary Roach. In 2008, the three partnered on a pair of deeply affecting emotional dramas––Universal’s recent Changeling, the true...

      Posting 'Naked'

      January 19, 2009, 6:55 am
      There’s an old adage in show business that if you want to ensure success, avoid working with kids and animals. Don’t tell that to picture editor Craig Cobb and supervising sound editor Louis Bertini, MPSE, who help post one of Nickelodeon’s hit shows, The Naked Brothers Band.
