There are many books on the technical aspects of film and video editing. Much rarer are books on how editors think and make creative decisions.
Filled with timeless principles and thought-provoking examples from a variety of international films, the second edition of Karen Pearlman's Cutting Rhythms offers an in-depth study of the film editor's rhythmic creativity and intuition, the processes and tools editors use to shape rhythms, and how rhythm works to engage audiences in film. While respecting the importance of intuitive flow in the cutting room, this book offers processes for understanding what editing intuition is and how to develop it.

Key Features
  • Offering possibilities opposed to prescriptions, the book breaks down the editor's fundamental tool of rhythm in an accessible way that allows you to apply the principles to your own work, presenting questions editors and filmmakers can ask themselves about their work along with a clear and useful vocabulary for working with those questions
  • This 2nd edition has been updated to include 4 new chapters, updated insight on how editing movement shapes an audience experience of cycles of tension and release, expanded coverage of sound and its impact on a physical experience of a film, and more
  • Features a brand new companion website with various video clips providing visual examples of concepts discussed in the book as well as raw footage for editors to practice with
