The assistant film editor has many more responsibilities than simply helping to edit the picture. He or she must work with all the numerous members of the filmmaking team, juggle the demands of copious amounts of footage from various sources, keep notes during the shoot’s dailies screenings, process sound, oversee the creation of optical effects and integrate them in the editor’s workflow, and many more detail-oriented, simultaneous tasks that require skills on a technical and organizational level. Widely regarded as THE guide for helping you get through it all, Norman Hollyn, editing whiz and longtime instructor, is the ultimate master at making the process fun while making you a pro. In this fourth edition, he continues in the celebrated style of his previous editions with a hands-on approach, assuming the role of an assistant editor to describe the myriad workflows involved. Not only will you learn everything you need to know about how the editing process works, but you’ll gain the wisdom that normally only comes with on-the-job experience, putting you way ahead in your career and making you a better, more efficient editor.
