About this deal

Margt af því sem Murch bendir á varðandi möguleg vandamál við klipp í stafræna heiminum vs analog er eitthvað sem ég get tengt við og lært af. As someone who edits videos, even of a much lower caliber than the material Murch works on, I found myself nodding along in recognition of what he revealed. A bad actor can often be spotted by the strange rhythmn of their blinking - it doesn't seem to be matching the emotional landscape of the story. I think I was looking for some more practical tips and tricks for editing, but I'm glad I read this and learned about the history of linear editing. But not only are cuts a pragmatic tool for the filmmaker, they can actually enhance the experience - be a preferred tool of choice.

In the Blink of an Eye: A Perspective on Film Editing is a non-fiction filmmaking book on the art and craft of editing authored by Walter Murch. Reading his book from his future, It was encouraging to see how much of what he said has come to light.

The rest is just Murch going on and on with 'clever' analogies to explain what editing is to an audience that maybe never before thought about the fact that movies are edited at all. Later in the book, after all that stuff, he talks about the differences between film editing and digital/electric editing.

Going in to detail about when and why we blink he takes this and talks about when to cut and how blinking so important.
