Whether you're a whiz with Avid or just discovered iMovie, the third edition of Grammar of the Edit gives you the answers to those all-important questions: WHEN to cut and WHY. Designed as an easy-to-use guide, the book presents each topic succinctly with clear photographs and diagrams illustrating the key concepts, and is a staple of any serious editor's or filmmaker's library.





The companion website, www.focalpress.com/cw/bowen, offers further instruction with video examples of different editing choices, types of shot transitions, photographs to further illustrate concepts, and exercises to practice your editing craft.
