Item description for Film Editing: The Art of the Expressive (Short Cuts) by Valerie Orpen...
Film Editing: The Art of the Expressive offers an analysis of editing in the sound film that considers editing as an expressive strategy rather than a mere technique. It reveals that editing can be approached and studied in a similar way to other aspects of film such as mise-en-scene. Studies on editing or montage tend to focus on silent cinema, yet this book claims that an examination of editing should also consider the role of the soundtrack. The aim is to examine the way in which editing can make meaning, and the book addresses editing as part of a wider context, and as a crucial element of the overarching design and vision of a film. The book includes detailed studies of Scorsese's Raging Bull, Hitchcock's Rear Window and Godard's A Boul de Souffle.
