How to Make Fast-Paced Editing Energetic and Coherent

In the below video, editor Vashi Nedomansky speeds up five films to twelve times their real length to make a point about fast-paced editing. The films Nedomansky chose–Taken 3, Mad Max: Fury Road, The Bourne Ultimatum, Domino, and Resident Evil: Apocalypse–all average at 3000 shots at around 2 seconds per shot.

“Fast editing and ASLs (Average Shot Length) of around 2 seconds does not have to be a visual debris tornado that hammers the viewer. Properly planned shots and diligent editing can result in an energetic AND quickly paced film that tells a coherent story,” writes Nedomansky.
