For a film editor it is a cause for frequent amusement and/or irritation, that film reviewers are never able to point out the editor's contribution. If a film is described as very effectively cut but otherwise long and boring, the editor knows that the film may have contained conspicuous transitions of scenes that were invented during the shooting or in the scriptwriting, but that the editing was ineffective or even sloppy.

In this post were going to talk about eye trace. I’ve been doing a lot of research on the subject lately. Here’s what I’ve come to realize. Eye trace is a simple concept to begin with, and if you think about it in your everyday editing it’ll improve so many little things.

The inspiration for the creation of this group is the international publication of "Cutting Rhythms: Shaping the Film Edit" by Dr Karen Pearlman, Head of Screen Studies at the Australian Film Television and Radio School and Co-Artistic Director of The Physical TV Company in Sydney, Australia. The book is being published by Focal Press, America’s leading publisher of books on film and media.

I can barely watch television anymore. Seriously. It seems that no one knows how to edit anymore, and the culprit in this demise is the non-linear editor. Allow me to explain. About 20 years ago, I went to Los Angeles to visit a friend that had landed a producing job at KNBC. During my tour of the station, my friend towed me through the edit suites. Above the door was a huge banner that...

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.

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...
