- What makes a great storyteller?…Well, I would argue that someone…who has an awesome story to share. Right?…But the delivery is also as important.…Adding the right amount of detail,…using dramatic pauses for effect,…and establishing intrigue…are all essential techniques.…The exact same principles apply to editing.…The editor's role is to shape the story…and the pacing of the film,…to keep it interesting,…and use his or her instincts…to deliver the director's creative vision…in the most engaging way possible.…
One of the best ways to achieve these…is to incorporate different techniques…to avoid getting stuck in a cutting rot.…If you have a choice of several camera angles,…don't go back to the same one you just used.…I understand that sometimes…we don't have an option.…If we don't have the coverage,…we don't have the coverage.…But if you have different takes…with different compositions,…try to use a little of all of them.…By doing this, we can provide freshness…to the edit,…and we can provide the viewer…with additional visual information.…
