Editing Theory from Walter Murch

is a series of short essays originally written in 1995 by Academy Award Winning editor .

Murch tries to tackle the question of why moviegoers are not more startled and confused when shown the disconnected images that ultimately make up a film. His realizations are not only pertinet to visual journalists, they are also relevant to those editing for the internet.

Interestingly, Murch edited 1993’s using Apple’s and has since become a Final Cut evangelist.
