Canon EOS 5D Mark II
Editing for Walter Murch breaks down into 3 strands:
- Plumbing – Which is the means of determining how to get here from there, i.e. how to get your media assets into the right bucket.
- Writing – Editing being the final draft of the film, you deal with the more experiential elements.
- Performing – The editor is creating. You’re on your feet like a musical conductor or cook or brain surgeon. All the things involved are time dependent. Aside from it being good for your health, this is part of the reason Walter Murch stands while editing.
