A Quick Edit Lesson

A Quick Edit Lesson

1 min read

In this post, I'm sharing a quick video on an edit I did for a documentary I'm working on. The video is 3 minutes and in it, I display a one-minute edit example and explain my approach. This is a micro-example of how I approach this kind of material. Every scene, like in this example, has three acts, and I distinctly differentiate and build up.

Here, I use from 'the inside out' technique. I start close, and gradually work out - introducing one 'item' or story piece at a time - to the scene end with a master shot.
