I am new : ) and for some reason I cannot seem to start a new Topic, but can
only post on a topic already started.
My interest in primarily in editing. And the topic I wished to start was
"views on editing"
I wonder about the general view on editors and the editing process , from the
pov of director, producer, writer and general public.
-How relevant is the background of the editor when editing a documentary
compared to a narrative.....what difference if any comes into play..
-How do you feel about the proposal of someone, a random person re-edit a
piece of film that has already been edited and released... do you find it
disrespectful, or inventive, or creative or etc ?
-if was proposed today, during a lively discussion.... that editors and editing is
as simple as plugging 26 alphabets into the word processor and coming up
with a word....
well that's my introduction : ) I am curious......
