reference films for editing

Dziga Vertov Man with a Movie Camera (Editing is utilized as a futurist gesture)

Jean Vigo’s A Propos de Nice (Juxtaposition of shots creates social critique)

Maya Deren’s Meshes in the Afternoon (The edit invokes a transformative state)

The ending sequence of Santiago Alvarez’s 79 Primaveras (skip to minute 4:10–incorporating the process of editing to the portrayal of chaos)


Godard’s Pierrot le fou (the Vietnam war scene–the interruption of the still image as catalyst to highlight underlying critique)

Winterbottom, Wonderland (excerpt–utilizing timing and editing to convey internal conflict)

Jump to Synesthesia (dilution of time/altered states)

Jump to I Wasn’t Made for Fighting (the “continuous camera move” has become a common live-action technique–how should editing techniques adapt to the 3D camera?)
