The Healthy Edit: Creative Editing Techniques for Perfecting Your Movie

Every film or show that we watch, no matter how great the final cut, has its problems during production. Whether it’s a bad performance from an actor, a hole in the story or script, continuity or pacing issues, or something being placed in a shot that shouldn’t be, there’s no shortage of problems encountered once postproduction has begun. Fixing these problems then becomes the job of the editor. This book provides those editors with creative editing solutions they can employ to overcome these problems and is the key to nursing a sick project back to health in the editing room. Though the book takes an application-agnostic approach, specific solutions are presented for today’s most commonly used non-linear editing applications. Solutions more relevant to certain genres are discussed in-depth, as are solutions that editors can employ through the use of simple VFX techniques. Case studies and interviews with Hollywood editors provide readers with real-world problems encountered, and solutions used to overcome them. The companion website provides Quicktime videos and Flash animations visually demonstrating problems and how they were dealt with.
