In The Blink Of An Eye: A Perspective On Film Editing was required for my going to film school, along with 15 other books (NONE OF WHICH WE READ BUT PAID FOR - INCLUDING THIS ONE OBVIOUSLY). The only part of the book that is unnecessary is the comparison of digital and film editing equipment, probably out of date even before the printing. The 103 third parties who use cookies on this service do so for their purposes of displaying and measuring personalized ads, generating audience insights, and developing and improving products. Reading his book from his future, It was encouraging to see how much of what he said has come to light.

Covers a great amount of theory and psychology of editing, as well as talking about the history of the editing, and comparing the two in a really understandable way for anyone to grasp the idea of the differences of today's and the past's editing.

Don’t necessarily operate on the elbow: instead, discover if nerves are being pinched somewhere else. If this book did anything for me, it helped me fall in love more with the art of editing, but I'm not sure if it gave me a lot of insight on how to be a better editor. With the older technology, it required you to sift through alot of material, and sometimes you would come across footage that was just what you needed - footage you may have discarded before. I’ve been editing since I was 12 so it has certainly affirmed and validated for me a lot of the things I knew about editing on certain levels, but never have had explicitly stated. The first half of this book is an indispensable treatise on WHY cuts in film/video work and WHAT separates good cuts from bad cuts.

But he reminds us that the ideal cut should, in descending importance, take in the following: emotion, story, rhythm, eye trace, two dimensional plane of screen, and the three dimensional plane of screen.In the Blink of an Eye is celebrated editor Walter Murch’s vivid, multifaceted, thought-provoking essay of film editing.

It's not a book on how to edit as in what quick keys you should use or how to diagram a scene to keep continuity. g. Edit Decision Lists), but it gets really good again contemplating what we lose when we take an enormous leap forward with technology. Murch noticed at some point in his career with Gene Hackman, that where Hackman blinked was often a good place to cut a sequence (just before the blink). Mniej w niej uwag, które mogą się przydać aspirującym montażystom, ale jest to interesujący wywód pod kątem sprawdzalności zawartych w nim prognoz.If In the Blink of an Eye was to be distilled to its essence, the 'original ideas' would take no more space than one and a half pages. You may not always succeed, but attempt to produce the greatest effect in the viewer’s mind by the least number of things on screen. Murch approach is more of the zen type, teaching that editing is more like a dance, and an art, than a science, and how you can learn from that. Focus on the emotion you seek, how to advance the story, and to cut just before, at, or after the viewer's blink of recognition or understanding, depending on the story you are telling.
