Designed for the novice or for a course in film editing, the book is the perfect introductory text. Editing is the art of using the building blocks supplied by the writer and director to create a structurally sound and brilliant piece of cinematic dazzle. As the word is to the sentence, so the shot is to the scene, and the editor must ""write"" coherently. This book teaches the aspiring editor how to speak the inspiring language of images. For projects, it covers the latest version of Final Cut Express, contains structured exercises, and uses video clips on the companion DVD, to allow the reader to apply the lessons of the book in clear and entertaining ways. Solutions to exercises and PowerPoint slides are available to instructors.
