Cutting Rhythms - Knowing where and when to make a film edit is more than an art. It's an intuitive sense that can make or break a movie. In this book, you'll explore and learn about this craft and gain a sense of how this skill is performed. It presents questions that the filmmaker or editor might ask themselves about how the edit fits in with the film.
In addition, you'll be exposed to a unique vocabulary that will help you come to terms and get your own "feel" about editing. It is hoped that this book will spur you on to make your own films with a better sense of how to "cut" it - ultimately, making you a better filmmaker.
