The Hold Up - Nationally syndicated film critic Roger Ebert takes students from rushes to the fine cut of a dramatic band robbery scene. Mr. Ebert's commentary provides insights into basic editing techniques such as matching action, parallel editing and continuity as well as the effects of camera angles, point of view and reaction shots.
The film concludes with two edited versions, illustrating the widely different approaches an editor might take in assembling the sequence. Unedited, slated rushes are available in various video and DVD formats, providing students with an opportunity to edit their own version of the scene. The sequence is designed so that it can be edited as a silent film or with single or double system sound.
DVD, VHS, CDROM and Rushes are all available for purchase separately
