Pudovkin’s 5 Editing Techniques
I’ve been studying editing recently and reading a lot of older books on film theory. Some of it is a little rough going, but a lot of it I’ve found very useful.
This video is about Vsevolod Pudovkin, a soviet filmmaker whose theories on editing technique are used in virtually every movie you see today.
I’m hoping to start making a lot more of these videos soon, going into more depth and analysis on aspects of cinematography, editing, etc.
If you’re interested in reading some of Pudovkin’s writings, his book “Film technique and Film acting: The Cinema Writings of V.I. Pudovkin” is available for free in PDF, Kindle, or EPUB format.
