In Cutting Rhythms from Focal Press, you'll explore and learn about film editing and gain a sense of how this skill is performed. In the book, author Karen Pearlman presents questions that the filmmaker or editor might ask themselves about how the edit fits in with the film, such as where and when to cut to make a film 'feel right'. In addition, you'll be exposed to a unique vocabulary that will help you come to terms and get your own "feel" about editing. With this book you'll develop your own sense of rhythm, refine our rhythmic shaping skills, and increase your creativity--and in so doing, become a better filmmaker.
