The film editor has many more responsibilities than simply editing the picture. He or she must liase with numerous members of the filmmaking team, take in copious amounts of footage from various sources, write up notes during the shoot's dailies screenings, process sound transfer reports, oversee the creation of optical effects, and many more detail-oriented tasks that require skills on a technical and organizational level. This book is THE guide to getting through it all and Norman Hollyn, editing whiz and longtime instructor, is the ultimate master at making it fun while making you a pro. In this fourth edition, he continues in the celebrated style of his previous editions with a hands-on approach to the editing process, assuming the role of an assistant editor to describe the myriad workflows involved. The Film Editing Room Handbook describes the process that any project (whether it is a feature, television, commercial, music video or web-based) takes from before shooting through release. From pre-production to the shoot, to editing and adding visual effects and sound, to the mix and color finishing, everything an editor needs to know on the job is covered. Other books look at the process, but always from a hardware or software-specific point-of-view. This book, in its new and previous editions, is specific enough to be a bible for the editor and assistant, but general enough to be useful to editors working on any platform. Not only will you learn everything you need to know about the editing process, you'll gain the wisdom that normally only comes with on-the-job experience, putting you way ahead in your career and making you a better, more efficient editor.
