    DescriptionThe value of the editor s craft to a finished film cannot be underestimated, and it s no surprise that directors rely heavily on the same editor again and again. This book employs stills and screenshots to show how an editor created a scene with the filmmaker and explores the complex relationship between a director who has just shot a movie and the editor who must complete the director s vision. Includes perspectives from Dylan Tichenor who has worked on "Boogie Nights," "Brokeback Mountain," "There Will Be Blood "and many others and Pietro Scalia, the great editor whose partners include Bertolucci, Van San, and Ridley Scott. Each book in the FilmCraft Series focuses on a specific aspect of the filmmaking process, presenting a visually strunning look at the subject through the eyes of notable professionals in each field. Each book offers deep insight into the working practices of the world s most distinguished professionals, covering their inspiration, collaboration, and work on set. Each professional has been interviewed exclusively, and goes into detail on specific scenes in their films to give concrete examples of their craft. The result is to provide readers with a fascinating inside look at the filmmaking art, and a wealth of knowledge that they can apply to their own work. Discussions with the world s most notable filmmakers, giving insights into professional practice, working relationships, and influencesSidebars featuring practical advice on topics that filmmakers can apply to their own workInterview-based format with perspectives from the greats appeals to non-practitioner film lovers

    Review quote
    ""Again, while Film Craft: Editing is not a textbook, it gives so many hints and tips on how many of the top editors of the industry think and work, one can glean remarkable insights from their experiences. What comes out from the interviews are candid stories of experiences from different film projects. Most of all the sheer enthusiasm and love of film and their art of editing bursts from the page."--Impulsegamer" "FilmCraft is a new series from Focal Press that deconstructs the art of cinema by studying it from the inside. Each volume in the collection focuses on a different aspect of film production by gathering interviews with master craftsmen, who are able to relay a lifetime of experience in a series of intimate and informal conversations. The first two installments, " Editing" (Justin Chang) and "Cinematography" (Mike Goodridge and Tim Grierson), set a high bar for future volumes and are easily recommended sources of information and understanding "Editing" and "Cinematography" are both highly recommended reading for anyone who enjoys movies and has an interest in learning more about the process. There is nothing here that feels like a textbook, but the insight provided within can be held up against any film school lecture and benefits from offering the views of more than a dozen teachers. Take my advice and pick up these books immediately."--HorrorTalk.com "Based on the interviews in Justin Chang s book, I believe editors deserve more than their well deserved industry accolades.

And there are the rock-star directors: Martin Scorsese, Steven Spielberg, Quentin Tarantino Many of whom get their name above the title. But after reading Editing, you realize that the editor is the second head on the director s body; equally responsible for the story,
