Can any body help please? I am looking for any suggestions on any basic editing theory and creativity DVD series that go through lessons on developing fil editing skill? I have been searching online tirelesslly and endlessly to no avail and can find nothing. I am not software specific. I cannot attend classes so I'm looking for a learning tool condensed in a DVD series that teach various types of cuts, editing certain genres, transitions, artistic editing techniques etc. I use Sony Vegas personally, and I am an at an intermediate level. This shouldn't matter though, as I am interested in learning technique, and the reasoning of deciding when to cut from one scene to the other etc. Please help if you can.
ever tried The Blink of an Eye by Walter Murc? you can get this for less than $20 but so valuable and you can learn a lot.
also try The Cutting Edge - The Magic of Movie Editing.
I tried both and it's really helpful plus you can also check out you tube..you can get lots of cool stuff there.
