Post-Production 1- Introduction to editing More than just the sum of its parts Task: to compress time, to make space contract or expand, to suggest locations or events that are non-existent <--- deception on a grand scale Editing: this is how it goes Know your footage inside out, viewing it repeatedly Know where strong points are and what looks good ‘log’ your footage with detailed notes, including descriptions of the shot, timecode start and end points, duration, whether audio is of sufficient quality Make a rough paper edit Editing dos and don’ts – say it economically Show the scene progress in terms of the motivation of characters, events that have happened or any other detail needed to understand the plot.(*make sure you understand the motivation of the character and build your edit around that) Sophisticated audiences want to be made to work a little to uncover the goodies you are offering—films that demand something of you are often the more satisfying experience.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
