Video Production Toronto – The Captain’s Blog
After We Shoot … We KEEP Editing
Hello everyone … John Secondi here with a continuation of an earlier “Groovy Blog”.
Video production is comprised of many different steps including one of the most important, video editing.
Here are a few more of the most popular types of edits you should consider using:
This technique, also known as parallel editing, features cuts between two different scenes happening concurrently in two different spaces. This allows you to tell two simultaneous stories at the same time keeping the attention of the audience throughout.
This is a somewhat older and slightly outdated technique. By using rapid cuts you can convey the passing which aids in the narrative. Think about the standoff with Clint Eastwood in The Good, the Bad and the Ugly often parodied on television. This type of cutting adds some dramatic tension to the production.
This technique is used to match the movement of two opposite scene environments. To move the narrative along, you try to connect these scenes together in a seamless fashion like was done in 2001: A Space Odyssey. The “Dawn of Man scene” was cut together with the “Space Station scene” very quickly and with continuity. This type of editing involves significant preplanning in the storyboard phase of the video production.
