O'Steen reveals how the editor - like a magician - manipulates the audience by using sleight of hand and seduces them by anticipating their needs and desires. Only then can he/she create those invisible cuts that grab the audience and keep them on the edge of their seats.

Great book for both film-makers and film-fans! 16. März 2009
Von Matthew Terry - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
My film is too long. First cut was over two hours, second cut I had trimmed nine minutes bringing it to 115 minutes. A few members of my "brain trust" (people who work in Hollywood and actually do this for a living) had told me to "cut it down substantially" but no one was giving me good examples of where or how. It was, simply, "cut it."

Easier said than done.

The task in front of me was to slice and dice my film in a way that would get my points across and tell my story as best as possible without, certainly, putting the audience to sleep.

When I got this book in the mail, I was like a kid on Christmas morning. It was exactly what I needed/wanted at this time of trial.

Using classic films (and all films I have seen and have in my collection - thank God she didn't use obscure/little seen films!) Bobbie O'Steen goes FRAME-BY-FRAME through certain scenes and situations; giving the reader a clear understanding of how the film was cut the way it was. How the director and/or editor worked to fix a performance. Whether it was the classic chase in "The French Connection" or the seduction scene in "The Graduate" - using her insight or, on occasion, interviews with directors and editors, she got to the heart of what made the scene work - or usually, how they MADE it work.

Who knew that the initial sex scene in "Body Heat" was actually a mistake, fraught with camera issues and footage that was unusable? Did you realize that a pivotal scene in "Chinatown" actually went on for a number of lines - but it was trimmed not so much for time, but for performance?

Not only does O'Steen's book take you into the cutting room, it takes you into the minds of the film-makers behind the scenes.

Where I felt the book could have been improved, slightly, was to take an approach in the book for that new director who doesn't have a clue (i.e.: me). Sort of a question and answer: "So you want to shoot a seduction scene, first, ask yourself: Who is the seducer, who is the seducee? Etc." I should, of course, glean this from seeing how Mike Nichols directed and Sam O'Steen (Bobbie O'Steen's late husband) filmed and edited the scene in "The Graduate" - but I sometimes like my lessons spelled out very clearly.

Second, and similar, there should have been a chapter, or two, dedicated to the first timer picking up the camera. A quick overview of what "coverage" is, clarifying the basics of shooting. Though she touches a bit on this, I would have liked there to be just a little more.

Bottom line, though, that by using scripts and frame shots from classic films, Bobbie O'Steen takes you inside the world of editing - turning it inside out to show you most everything you need to know about the process. An excellent book for both film-makers and film fans.

Not Sure This Works 19. Mai 2015
Von GG - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This book didn't really work for me. The first 56 pages are somewhat helpful in going through some of the basic principles of film editing. However, from page 57 on, the author basically walks you through pages and pages of frame grabs from famous movies, then offers pages of summary-type deconstructions on each series. I think you have to be a little obsessive to follow along with this methodology in a book format.

One thing that bothers me about the book is the manner in which she deconstructs scenes. In my understanding of editing, there are many wrong ways to edit a scene, but no one "right" way. The author seems to take the position that there is only one way and that's the way the movie ended up being cut. For me, that mindset just doesn't hold water and doesn't seem especially helpful. It is kind of like saying, "Cut here for maximum impact." I just don't buy it. Especially in editing, there is definitely more than one way to skin a cat but the other ways are not acknowledged.

An exception to this starts on page 237, when the author apparently interviewed Carol Littleton about her thought processes while editing Body Heat. Through this interview, you start getting the back and forth that goes into editing and see the concept that there is not always 100% certainty about what shots and cuts will work and why. For instance, in discussing one particular shot from Body Heat, Littleton says, "There's one shot I would to have to say...that I did not want in the movie. I did not like the panties going down, but Larry loved it; he said, it's a guy thing, gotta leave it in. I just really didn't like that."

That part of the book is helpful because it gives you true insight into the editing process and the compromises that sometimes have to be made, and the uncertainty there is. Unfortunately, that's only a smaller section toward the end of the book.

I am not saying don't buy this book, but understand what you are getting is scenes from movies broken down by frame grabs, then those same shots described again in summary "deconstructions," which usually conclude there was no better or other way to have cut said scene.

Three-Lifetimes of Know-How 2. März 2009
Von Richard D. Pepperman - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Here is a perspective on film editing from an iconic legacy: If ever there was someone who signifies the heart of post-production it is Bobbie O'Steen. "The Invisible Cut: How Editors Make Movie Magic" presents (no less than) three-lifetimes of practical and creative insights that few have attained, and fewer can explain.

It's hard to describe film editing in a book 27. Mai 2014
Von Reno Dave - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
While this book contains many screenshots, they fail to help convey how the pacing and the feel of a movie is affected by editing. This subject is probably better covered in a DVD than a book.

Format: Taschenbuch
Very good book, both for students and for those who already work as an editor. Theory and practice, scenes from famous films - very useful.
