Editing sounds very simple, but it is actually a process of cutting the video and then re-integrating it. However, in the specific operation, it tests the level and thought of the editor very much, that is, the editing thinking ability mentioned by the subject. In addition, since the video will follow the logic and ideas of the photographer at the beginning, this is also a big difficulty that editors often encounter, because this is quite different from the thinking of the director of the editing. Therefore, editing beginners must not fall into the shooting angle, but should think about the problem from the perspective of the director. So when editing, you have to suspend the audience’s appetite at the beginning, follow the audience’s feelings in the middle, and finally go against the audience’s thinking. After all, unexpected results are the key to a good story! The process can be guessed, but the result is best not to follow the old-fashioned “happy” ending. In addition, you also need to have a certain degree of musical literacy. After all, through a simple pitch change, you may change the mood of the audience, just like Walter Murch mentioned in “The Editing Way” that “editing is the most important thing.” It’s not about the story or the skill of shooting. The most important thing is how to arouse the emotions of the audience!” In the past few years as an editor, I often see some students who are beginners in editing, and the picture jumps during the editing process. Even in the case of cross-axis, then it is actually because of the lack of grasp of the rhythm of the editing. Professional editing usually shoots videos from multiple cameras, and you can get a certain action from different angles, so you can better connect the actions. Then even amateur video enthusiasts can try to shoot the same scene from different angles, which will help you get more angle shots in the editing. In short, students must make it clear that we learn editing thinking in order to be able to grasp the rhythm of editing, the coherence of the storyline, the processing of temporal and spatial relationships, and to better mobilize the audience’s emotions.

I think editing thinking can be divided into several aspects: 1. Director thinking 2. Audience thinking 3. Camera sense 4. Music sense 1. First of all, as the second-degree creator of a film, the editor must have the thinking of a later director. Don’t fall into the logic and thinking of the photographer, otherwise, no matter how good the editing is, no matter how smooth it is, the director’s standard will be high. Before editing a film, familiarizing with the material is the most basic and most important task. After understanding the material and finding the main drama conflicts, how to structure and connect the material is the embodiment of the editor’s director’s thinking, which can be as large as adjusting the film. The structure and plot, as small as the assembly of a shot, are all areas where post editors can play. 2. When editing a film, it is necessary to figure out who the film is shown to, that is, who the audience is, what the audience’s characteristics are, and what the audience wants to watch, so that we can find the right way to deal with it when editing and when to follow the audience. , When to hang the audience, when to go against the audience, such a film will be more exciting and hierarchical. 3. The so-called lens sense is the sensitivity to the material lens. Seeing a lens can associate a plot or emotion. The second is the idea of ​​lens assembly, what kind of assembly is the most reasonable, or what kind of assembly is the most unexpected. 4. Music is an indispensable and important part of a film. Appropriate music can make the mood and rhythm of the film better. In addition, when to enter music, when to receive music, and when to leave blank, all editors need Thinking hard. If you want to improve these aspects, there are no shortcuts. Look more and cut more. During the editing process, you will have such questions. How can the rhythm of this passage be more comfortable? How to cut this period of conflict will be stronger? Wait for the question. When you look at other people’s works, you will find that it can be cut in this way, but it can still highlight emotions in this way. Always tell yourself to think from these aspects, in the process, you will slowly mature.

Everyone’s idea of ​​editing thinking is different, and there is no right or wrong. The key is to see what you want to convey through a scene, a plot, or a movie, and this communication can have several levels. , The character’s emotion, the film’s tone, and ultimately all serve the purpose of the film, which is the core expression after you negotiate with the director. First of all, you must have a lot of reading, have a good understanding of the story structure of each type of film, and know how to achieve each style of editing. It is recommended that you usually pull the film, especially Award films, innovative films (referring to audiovisual language), you have to think about why people cut it like this. Nothing is more direct than this. You can even put a scene on the timeline, separate each scene, and give him a new look. The rehearsal combination, the feeling is completely different, try it and you will know. The other is that the way of portraying characters and telling stories is actually very similar to screenwriters. Let the audience watch with questions. This is something you need to consider and understand when you cut the scissors. You have to have a good understanding of the material in your hands, usually more. To train ourselves to tell stories with pictures, we are different from screenwriters not only in making changes and restructuring the story in the later stage, but when we are at this stage, it must be a whole of audio and video. The means of narration are only lens and sound. In many cases, I think the editor really needs to understand all walks of life. You have to understand performance, composition, photography, psychology, music, and color… Then there is another point, that is, the most advanced editing is always for the audience. What is imperceptible, how to achieve this imperceptible, is to let them bring in 100%, 100% want to quickly watch the following plot development. Therefore, the final effect of editing is to cut the protagonist’s emotional line and bring out the emotional line logically. You must understand the protagonist in the film better than him, even one step earlier. As long as the mood doesn’t fall in each scene, you won’t feel jumpy. Next, if you bring the three points mentioned above into practice and watching movies, you may think more and form your own opinions. Another thing to add is that there is another type of editing that is purely technical rather than storytelling, such as MV, highlights, travel short films… For this kind of editing, you should train more editing skills, how to transition, how to bring rhythm, How cool is it? Generally speaking, watch more movies and experience is in the lens.

Listen more, watch more, cut more. First of all, understand what type of film you want to cut, and make a targeted pull. It should be understood that the focus and skills to be mastered for different fields and types of film editing are different. Whether the film is story-oriented (movies, reality shows, etc.) or display-oriented (advertisements, travel videos, etc.), what the former needs is the ability to tell stories, how to use audiovisual language to tell stories clearly and vividly. On the one hand, you can read more books on screenwriting, on the other hand, you can observe in life. I didn’t encounter a single thing, so I thought about how to shoot and how to assemble the shot if it was you. The latter needs to focus on key points, know how to make trade-offs and magnification in form. Regardless of the type, you must watch other people’s works more. “Imitate” first and then create based on the material. And after reading it, you must do it yourself and find a variety of materials to get started with actual operations. Otherwise, just knowing it theoretically will have no effect at all. Say a way. For example, when editing a two-person dialogue. You can listen to a line first, and then think in your mind how to switch the screen if it is you. Then compare it with the edited version to see where the differences are, and then think about why it is like that. Come a little bit.

Speaking of the word training, then you must know what imperceptibility is! In fact, editing thinking is very mysterious. Everyone has their own editing thinking, but it is not recognized by everyone, so there is no difference between good and bad editing thinking. The key point of editing thinking for a good work is definitely to experience a good grasp of the audience’s emotions. How to train editing thinking? ? First of all, you have to determine what your editing direction is, such as promotional films, movies, or variety shows, and then choose a few excellent films, step by step to go crazy and analyze, but the most important thing is that you have to personally Hands-on practice, if you don’t practice, it won’t be effective if you watch it thousands of times. Slowly you will form your own editing thinking. This step is the path that any editor must take, and there are no shortcuts. If you have free time, you can improve other auxiliary skills, such as lens language, art appreciation, audiovisual language, psychology, etc., which will help you a lot in your future development.

My editing idea is very simple and rude. It is to filter all the materials based on my own aesthetics, and then cut down the unnecessary parts when editing, leaving only the most satisfying moments, and finally fit the rhythm according to the determined soundtrack. Combining, sorting, special effects, motion effects, and color adjustments corresponding to the position of the card point, and the use of materials in each step, is the most satisfactory in terms of aesthetics. However, there are prerequisites for this: ①The quality of the material itself is very high; the editor’s personal aesthetics must be very clear; ③Party A does not make too many demands.

For me, it means to watch variety shows more and see what my colleagues do. This is one of them, and the other is to reflect on one’s own advantages. What details have not been unearthed, and what has been unearthed, is there any other solution for rhythm processing? After merging everyone’s styles, I then do subtraction. I choose my favorite method to process similar videos, so that I can exercise my editing thinking and editing style.
