The Technique Of Film Editing (Library Of Communication Techniques) by Karel Reisz, Gavin Millar
Thank goodness this classic book has come back into print! Though The Technique of Film Editing has not been revised since 1968, it is still the single most comprehensive and engaging volume on film editing. Karel Reisz and Gavin Millar introduce readers to every aspect of the editor's craft. They provide a concise history of editing and describe editing style as it applies to every genre of moviemaking, including the many types of narrative and documentary films. The particular demands of wide-screen filmmaking, cinema vérité, and the avant-garde are also covered. Reisz and Millar's account of the differences between smooth and abrupt editing and their remarkable sense of editing for dramatic effect rather than for realism make this book an essential for apprentice editors, as well as for those who want to know how filmmakers understand their work.
