Here’s the third and final part of Jim Emerson‘s video editing masterclass, In the Cut which he has titled, I Left My Heart in My Throat in San Francisco. In this video, Jim uses William Friedkin’s “The French Connection” (1971), Peter Yates’ “Bullitt” (1968) and Don Siegel’s “The Lineup” (1958) to clearly show how editing and using motion works for the viewer while watching a movie.
If you’ve missed the first and second part of the series, you can catch up here for The Dark Knight and here for Salt. If you’re a budding filmmaker or just want to find out more about how cutting a movie all comes together. Jim uses easy to follow was of explaining things which suits me just fine!
Click play and enjoy and once again, thank you Jim for bringing us all this series.
