Abstract:

This definitive book about film editing pulls back the curtain and shows us how the mysterious art of editing is actually done. Using examples from the best editors in the world, author O'Steen explains to us what the editor really does to make us believe in movie magic. By analyzing the "out" and "in" frames of the actual cuts from classic masterpieces -- The Graduate, Chinatown, Rear Window, The French Connection, Twelve Angry Men, The Big Chill, Body Heat, A Hard Day's Night, and Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid -- O'Steen reveals how an editor manipulates us by using sleight of hand and seduces us by anticipating our needs and desires. Only then can the editor create those invisible cuts that grab us by the seat of our pants and keep us there. - Publisher.
