Movie Trailer Recuts: It's all in the editing...

Editing is sometime called a story's final re-write. It's the stage in post-production when all of the story elements are finally assembled. For movies, editing means weaving pictures & sounds, using cuts and transitions to control pace & mood. In movies what happens in the edit suite can make or break the director's story...or tell an entirely different one.






How may times have you seen a movie trailer that looks nothing like the movie you paid to see? Marvel at the skill of the trailer editor, for they know how to spin a story and sell the sizzle! What some of them do to relax is a testament to the power that skillful editing has to tell engaging and sometimes completely unexpected stories.

There is much to learn from their example...
