If you didn’t know that yet, now you do. I love the idea of putting a series of images together and telling a story. I have done work behind the camera and in front of it. Personally I prefer being behind it. I love editing, I can’t explain why but I love editing. It would drive most people absolutely nuts sitting in front of a computer and watching the same thing over and over trying to nail down the pacing. Looking at what shots should go where and how long they should be to keep with the flow of the piece. In my brain it is fun. My wife says she doesn’t understand how I can do it (she watched me do it once). It is an art form, it is subjective. However, I do think that there are good editors and bad editors. Michael Khan is probably my top inspiration when it comes to editing, he gets it. Michael doesn’t interfere in the story, he drives it. You have seen his movies and probably don’t even know it. Don’t believe me, check out his IMDB page.
Anyway, I am getting my Video section built and would love comments and feedback on my own work. Check it out.
One thought on “Did I mention I went to film school?”
Dude, just knowing he edited Hogan’s Heroes is awesome! No, seriously, that’s a lot of films. I was going, “know that one, that one, that one, THAT one…” the whole way until around the Indiana Jones stuff, and some sprinkling until further back with the heroes… I can see why you’re inspired by him, though I can’t say I’d be able to sit there and edit. Don’t know since I haven’t before.
