Although great films begin with great scripts, crews, and actors, it’s good editing that takes a film the rest of the way.

COMPLETELY REVISED AND UPDATED FOR THE DIGITAL ERA, this second edition of one of film editing’s best-selling books teaches readers how to organize and edit footage and see their project to completion. It’s both a comprehensive guidebook and a friendly, dependable companion for anyone taking the editor’s path or wishing to better understand it.

Learn how the skilled editor turns raw footage into polished art for film, television or web. With practical project guidelines and advice on organizing digital and film cutting rooms, How to Edit Your Film or Video de-mystifies action, montage, dialogue editing, SFX and explains sound/music editing and mixing.

With over 25 information-packed tables and forms, this guide includes an up-to-date glossary, an editor’s resource guide and a section on how to land that elusive editing job.
