Film Editing: Emotion, Performance and Story (Paperback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


Emotional engagement with visual stories through performance and camera placement is one of the most significant factors in how the audience appreciates a film or a television program. By selecting and combining fragments of moving image and sound the editor influences how the audience receives information.

Combining history, theory and practice, this book explains why certain editorial decisions impact on the emotional and narrative engagement of the audience. With full-color examples taken from features, short films, documentaries and commercials, this book introduces a range of different editing styles and techniques. It also provides guidance on the day-to-day procedures of the cutting room and the practical skills of the editor.

Each chapter includes in-depth interviews with current editors, directors and writers, demonstrating a wide range of techniques and working styles. The practical exercises are accompanied by editable video and audio material, enabling you to experiment with the ideas and techniques introduced in each chapter. Examples of cuts from the accompanying footage is also provided.
