October 5 th , 2006 Annie Hall vs. Strictly Ballroom Many different parts of a film determine how its story is going to be told. Annie Hall (Woody Allen) and Strictly Ballroom (Baz Luhrmann) are perfect examples of how editing can be used to convey emotion, and communicate with the audience. Though both films are different in many ways, exhibiting a variation in their organization patterns, pace, and rhythm, they are also similar. The main difference between these two films, however, is the way in which they were cut in order to tell their stories. Both films use very unique forms of editing to connect with the audience, and each form is worth discussion. A very large component that enables a film to successfully share its story with those watching it is pace. Pace is the speed at which the story is told. A viewer doesn’t want to see the movie to slow, because they will get bored and lose interest. Similarly, if the pacing is too fast, people will become confused and therefore lose interest. A perfect medium has to be found between the two in order to successfully achieve a good film pace. The film Annie Hall is an excellent example of a movie that is slow paced.
