Overview

It explains in simple terms, with the use of icons, the fundamental components of an edit. It lists, examines and explains the rules and working practices of post-production editing and has been meticulously class-tested, both in Europe and the Third World.

If you want to be effective with editing, either in film or video, this book sets down, in a simple uncomplicated way, the fundamental knowledge you will need to make a good edit between two shots. Intended primarily for the novice to the craft of editing, Grammar of the Edit is couched in basic, jargon-free, language, and illustrated by easy to follow diagrams.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
A review on amazon.com of the first edition:
"This book describes in no uncertain terms what ABSOLUTELY MUST BE IN EACH AND EVERY SHOT-so that the successful filmmaker can build a story that flows smoothly. This book will help you to be artistic, but will also help you to avoid confusing your audience. A small book that is easily read in the space of an hour, the student or novice film-maker will find himself using it as a quick reference many times over. Highly recommended."
