   schema:description "This is the first comprehensive examination of the film editor's craft, from the beginning of cinema to the end of the 20th century. Film editing is widely considered to be at its best when it goes unnoticed, making it the least understood of the cinematic crafts. This book explains not only the "how" but also the "why" of this pivotal filmmaking activity. This study traces the development of editing from the primitive forms of early cinema through the upheavals caused by the advent of sound, to explore the challenges to convention that began in the 1960s and which continue into the 21st century. New digital technologies and the dominance of the moving image as an increasingly central part of everyday life have produced a radical rewriting of the rules of audio-visual address. Anyone taking an informed interest in the development of the moving image will find this book revealing and rewarding.--From publisher description."@en ;
