This book takes an approach to editing that both beginning and intermediate student editors will find refreshing. While other books approach the topic of editing by teaching the functions of the editing software, this book explains how students can make smart choices and use those functions to affect the story. In the book they’ll learn workflow tips, time saving techniques, linear and non-linear theory, cutting techniques, enhancing emotion through music and sound effects, leveling and mastering audio, color correction, and most importantly, the role editing can have on the telling of the story. Additional techniques are shown through multiple step-by-step videos available on the author’s site as well as clips from a documentary the author created on editing.
