Posted on March 23, 2010 in: Editing, Television by Andrew Birkhead

Joy of Film Editing has an interesting post centering on ‘Hollywood style’ editing, shot duration and how shorter shots resonate with the natural rhythm of the brain.

“Good storytelling is the balancing of constraints at multiple scales of presentation… film editors design shot patterns with care, generating a visual momentum in the viewer, who tracks the narrative.”
