Join Ashley Kennedy for an in-depth discussion in this video Exploring timing and pacing, part of Introduction to Video Editing.
- Now that we know some…of the basic building blocks of editing,…as well as the basic rules…that we can either follow or break,…let's talk about the space between the edits,…the timing and pacing that we use…in putting the footage together.…I tell my students that…anyone can throw shots into a timeline.…Truly, anyone can, it's physically very easy to edit.…Even if you're great at understanding shot composition,…camera and lens movement,…as well as either following…or breaking the various rules of editing,…let me tell you something.…
You've still got your work cut out for you…in terms of really being a great editor.…That's because it's those small, subtle moments…on either side of the edit that really make…a big difference in your viewer's experience…watching your film.…You've gotta know when to…tighten up a scene to match the heightened energy,…and you need to know when to let edits out,…to let a scene breathe and match the proper mood.…We already talked a bit about timing…and pacing in the previous movie on montage.…
