Book Description

7 Aug 2012
"First Cut 2: More Conversations with Film Editors" presents a new collection of twelve interviews with award-winning film editors who discuss the art and craft of editing in the twenty-first century. As a follow-up to the successful "First Cut: Conversations with Film Editors" (now celebrating its 20th anniversary), this new volume explores the transition of editing from the age of celluloid to the digital age. These extraordinarily articulate editors share their passion about film, offer detailed practical examples from their films to explain their process as well as their challenges, and imbue each interview with unique personality, humor, and cinematic insights. "First Cut 2" continues the tradition of the first volume by interviewing fiction and documentary editors, contributing to a rich, holistic appreciation of editing. It also introduces a significant interview with an independent filmmaker/editor to emphasize today's multiple opportunities for aspiring filmmakers to make their own "small films" and achieve success. Together with the first volume, "First Cut 2" offers a panoramic survey of film editing and preserves its history through the voices of its practitioners. The stories told will engage students, inform general filmgoers, and even enlighten industry professionals.

Review

"The real accomplishment of Oldham's book is her concentration on the psychology of editors rather than just their technical ingenuity ... Let's hope a third volume of this illuminating series will follow." -- Kevin Lewis Editors Guild Mag 20130312

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating book 11 Dec 2012
By Victor M Livingston - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Well-researched, very sensitive and insightful. Gives an interesting and tantalizing perspective of what happens "behind the scenes." The people she interviewed are very lively, creative folks who create films for a living. If you want to know how good movies really get made, read this.
