Editing exercise: clip 8
Here are some ideas, plans, and diagrams for potential editing exercises accessible from this clip.
- re-editing clip according to the rate of modern film editing
- heightening the pace of the scene with more intercutting, less and shorter static camera shots
- cutting down on the length, recurrence of histrionic scenes: Lillian Gish repeatedly lapsing into unconsciousness
- perhaps even provide some statistics about editing speeds during different periods within the development of Hollywood film style (versus Soviet montage, for instance)
