T Apr 07Zoom: Editing Technique (1200p)
Guided In-Class Individual Assignment: Phase 1 - Preparing to Edit
Analytical Screening: The Cinemetrics website offers helpful data for studying the pacing of films. You might look up a bar graph representing Joker (2019), for example, and track the length of each shot, noting trends as the film's emotional intensity increases or decreases. Watch Snow Falling on Cedars (1999). Compare the opening scenes on the foggy Puget Sound, or the concluding argument of attorney Nels Gudmundsson, to "Hatsue's Letter" (Ishmael's memory of an important battle). What observations can you make about relative pacing? Imagine you're editing the audio of the "Letter" sequence. What rules might govern your choices? Submit no more than a page of thoughtful viewing notes to D2L. (1200p)
