Where do I find editing analysis videos?
on Oct 2, 2017 at 4:38:15 pm

I am looking for videos of editors who analyze the editing techniques and thought processes used in editing the major TV shows and movies.

For example, the video would go through most of the scenes of an episode of The Handmaid's Tale and break it down shot by shot what the editor is doing and why. The why being the most important part.

Does anything like this exist? If not, what do you recommend I use to learn how the top editors do their job, the choices they make and why.

Thanks!

Have you looked at the AFI and ACE websites?

Mark, good call. I haven't yet. I was thinking of YouTube shows.

I'm not sure you'll find anything that detailed, however, here are some starters:

You may enjoy Sven’s series particularly, since it’s a complete series of episodes tracking a “whole movie” workflow start to finish with his commentary about why he’s making the choices he does to address every issue he encounters - as he encounters them.

It’s as realistic and comprehensive a look at how a working editor might think at ALL stages of the process as anything I’ve ever seen.

Other editors would make other choices, obviously - but the level of switching between global issues and tiny details in the craft of editing has seldom been better shown, IMO.

I've seen a lot of videos over the years that attempt to explain what it takes to be a good editor. However, about a year ago I stumbled onto one piece that is so good that it should be mandatory viewing for anyone learning the craft.
