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)
