First Light Video's How Hollywood Does It: Techniques of Editing is a DVD that takes a look at the history, techniques, movements, and people who create motion pictures. This program focuses on editing and how this process helps tell the story in a motion picture. The editing process follows some simple steps: take the raw footage from the camera after it is developed, select the shots and combine them into sequences which will themselves be combined to create an entire motion picture. Completing these steps sounds easy enough, but in reality, editing a film extends beyond arranging shots into a completed project. Deciding which shots to use and their length requires creativity and discernment. Editing is sometimes described as an invisible art, because if the editor performs their job well, the audience never notices the cuts. Editing discusses how a film is cut to create the story we see on the screen. This program features a long take, from the 1950 film Cyrano de Bergerac, establishing shot, from the 1937 film A Star is Born, a point of view shot, when the camera replaces the eye of the character and we see exactly what the character sees - the opening of Naked Kiss from 1964, and cutting on action, from John Houston's 1954 film Beat the Devil.
