I’ve been reading Walter Murch’s In the Blink of an Eye lately. It’s the second edition, which means it has almost half of it devoted to digital editing. I also read an “editing & post-production” book and “The Conversations” and watched a documentary called “The Cutting Edge” which are all pretty Murch-heavy. I need to find other editors who wrote about editing to balance out all the Murch I’ve just absorbed.
The title chapters make it sound a little elementary, just bound up with medical analogies. But I read an excerpt of a “Case Study” for a movie about a Reindeer.
This one seems promising to take it in a different direction. The chapter titles show that it is primarily focused on rhythm, which is a narrow enough focus that it probably gets deep into it.
