  1. I ve been reading Steve Hullfish s interviews for a while, but it s even pleasant to read them in this book The interviews are sorted by theme and not by editors, so it s very pleasant to read and you really learn a lot.

  2. This book is a treasure trove of practical information on the art and technique of film editing In addition to the Technique of Film Editing, Eisenstein s Essays and In the Blink of an Eye this book will have a place of honor on your bookshelf, with an exception you will find this book getting a lot wear and tear because it is information you will use day in and day out as you progress in your editing career.Starting with the mindset of setting up and approaching a project and going through to the philosophical reasonings why one might make certain choices, Steve Hullfish did a tremendous job crafting an immensely practical book and my gratitude goes out to the men and women who shared their hard won knowledge to make the path easier to follow for all of us.Technology always marches relentlessly on, but just as the 5 Cs of Cinematography is just as relevant today as it was almost 70 years ago, I believe this book will stand the test of time and be a continual source of ...

  4. I came across Steve Hullfish through his blog and thought, Thank god, someone who asks the questions that I am interested in That same day I saw he published this book and I immediately bought it It does not disappoint Assembling responses from a mix of amazing editors this books gives insights into things that most books miss how to watch dailies, approaching a blank project timeline, organizing bins in a way that will help your cut, micro structure, macro structure, pacing and so so much The other thing I love about this book is that the responses approaches from the interviewed editors are not always the same and often contradict each other Some methods work for some but not others This allows the reader to see many approaches and use the wisdom from each approach to create their own hybrid style It s also great for new assistants, allowing them to become familiar with the many appr...

  5. I learned about this book from Zach Arnold He interviewed Steven Hullfish, and I immediately ordered this book Since then it is one of three books I keep by my bed at night As a video editor, I am always looking for a way to improve my skill I have always believed that if you want success with anything, you must find someone who already has what you are striving for, then model them.Steven gives us EVERYONE From organization, creativity, storytelling, pacing, music, and much Steven has provided us aspiring video editors a one stop shop for all video editing knowledge He puts you into the cutting room with the most world renown editors, and allows you to have a conversation with them Any question you would ask an Oscar winning editor, Steven asks What makes them successful, and how do you achieve it You gain tactics and strategies that help you in any form of editing you are involved with.The treasur...
