EDITING AND SPECIAL/VISUAL EFFECTS. Charlie Keil. Rutgers University Press, New Brunswick, 2016. 256 pp. 22 x 15 cm. ISBN 9780813570822 In English.
Paperbound edition also available; see Worldwide 171921. Publisher's description: Most moviegoers think of editing and special effects as distinct components of the filmmaking process. We might even conceive of them as polar opposites, since effective film editing is often subtle and almost invisible, whereas special effects frequently call attention to themselves. Yet, film editors and visual effects artists have worked hand-in-hand from the dawn of cinema to the present day. Editing and Special/Visual Effects brings together a diverse range of film scholars who trace how the arts of editing and effects have evolved in tandem. Collectively, the contributors demonstrate how these two crafts have been integral to cinematic history, starting with the "trick films" of the early silent era, which astounded audiences by splicing in or editing out key frames, all the way up to cutting-edge effects technologies and concealed edits used to create the illusions. Throughout, readers learn about a variety of filmmaking techniques, from classic Hollywood's rear projection and matte shots to the fast cuts and wall-to-wall CGI of the contemporary blockbuster.
