THEORY OF MONTAGE: SERGEI EISENSTEIN • Metric montage • Rhythmic montage • Tonal montage • Over tonal montage • Intellectual montage

“ODESSA STEPS” SEQUENCE The power of the cut, rhythm, juxtaposition, parallel action and montage.

EXPERIMENTS IN CINEMA: DZIGA VERTOV “The Man with the Movie Camera” (1929) • Vertov reminds viewers that cinema is not reality • Special effects and fantasy • Playful clash of reality and illusion • Visual associations http://youtu.be/Iey9YIbra2U

EXPERIMENTS IN CINEMA: LUIS BUNUEL “Un Chien Andalou” 17min,(1929) • Destroys meaning, shock • Surrealism, expressionism, psychoanalysis • Visual discontinuity: continuity editing, but discontinuity in the story plot and character goal http://youtu.be/_DZ1x-xBtUM

Modern Times Chaplin (1936)

ACTION CONTINUITY: ASSIGNMENT #1 In the first assignment you will learn techniques of action continuity. 1. Match on action 2. Shot/Reverse-shot 3. 180 degree rule

ACTION CONTINUITY: MATCH ON ACTION “Match on Action” is when you cut to a new camera angle at the same point in time without breaking the flow of the previous shot.

ACTION CONTINUITY: SHOT/REVERSE SHOT “Two shots edited together that alternate the characters, typically in a conversation situation.”

THE RULE OF 6: WALTER MURCH 1) Emotion 2) Story 3) Rhythm 4) Eye‐trace 5) Two‐dimensional plane of screen 6) Three‐dimensional space of action For Murch, an ideal cut, • • • • • • Is true to the emotion of the moment; Advances the story; Is rhythmically interesting and “right”; Acknowledges the “eye-trace”; Respects “planarity”; Respects the three-dimensions continuity of the actual space. But, he says, emotion “is the thing that you should try to preserve at all costs.” Murch, W. In the blink of an eye: A perspective on film editing.
