SUMMARY

  • One of the harder parts of editing is choosing to leave things out. Just because you have the footage doesn't mean you have to use it.
  • Intuitive editing often leads to the best decisions. Agonizing over every single option and possibility will destroy perspective.
  • You can tighten the edit a great deal by cutting stale footage at the heads and tails of a shot to keep the story moving along. Hold on your moments - cut everything else to a smart clip.
