Which is quite good for the theory of editing
21 March 2017
This, although in its 2nd edition is very theoretical. Which is quite good for the theory of editing. It tells you what to look out for when putting a movie together. It does meander on 'splicing' which refers to celluloid film and not digital within a computer. The last few added pages refer to digital editing, but still a good read if you are a fan of the films that Walter Murch has actually edited. These are referred to quite often through out this book. If you have no concept of cutting and splicing the old way, give it a miss and find something appropriate for you. I bought this for my students to read and it just didn't blow their skirts up.
