Much not only explains the art of editing and his approach to it but he also looks into real life and tells stories.

Covers a great amount of theory and psychology of editing, as well as talking about the history of the editing, and comparing the two in a really understandable way for anyone to grasp the idea of the differences of today's and the past's editing. What Ansel Adams did for me in terms of photography, what Vincent Baker did for me in terms of game design, what Barry Hampe did for me in approaching documentary work, and what Robert McKee did for me in thinking about western stories, Walter Murch has done for m in film and editing.

Bók Walter Murch um klipp á kvikmyndum dregur upp ýmsar vangaveltur um vinnuaðferðir klipparans í gegnum tíðina þar sem Murch notast aðalleg við frásagnir úr eigin starfsæfi. En el contenido original del libro, escrito a comienzos de los 90, el lector descubre el oficio del montaje, su historia y su razón de ser ¿por qué el corte de un plano a otro funciona para el espectador, en vez de simplemente provocar confusión? I originally bought this to learn about editing from one of the best which I did but my surprise was in that this book is also a powerful philosophical read on life!

But he reminds us that the ideal cut should, in descending importance, take in the following: emotion, story, rhythm, eye trace, two dimensional plane of screen, and the three dimensional plane of screen. It has really short chapters with a lot of repetition, very reminiscent of your average self help lecture. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. At any rate, I believe "filmic" juxtapositions are taking place in the real world not only when we dream but also when we are awake.While it's unfair to judge Murch's book by how fast editing evolved in the two decades after it came out, I do not approve of the status this book has.

The only part of the book that is unnecessary is the comparison of digital and film editing equipment, probably out of date even before the printing. Much of the book references experiences Murch had editing The English Patient, Apocalypse Now, and The Godfather. he treats the reader to a marvelous ‘ride’ through the esthetics and practical concerns of cutting film. I bought this book expecting exactly that, but even when none of it came, it was a great experience, and I learned a LOT.when it’s the original text, gets really tedious once it discusses the transition from analog to digital editing during the addendum. His handling of the topic is simultaneously familiar and original, and always it is full of insight. The afterward looks at the move from film to digital media, looking at advantages and drawbacks, and detailing Murch’s own personal experience with the shift, a shift he had eagerly anticipated and partook in. Ele fala sobre: o porquê e o que motiva um “cut”; a experiência dele em edição de filme; a história da edição (transição do cinema analógico para o digital: pontos positivos e negativos). In the Blink of an Eye is celebrated film editor Walter Murch's vivid, multifaceted, thought -- provoking essay on film editing.

The first half is about the art of editing itself (and more old-style/analog editing), distilling several days worth of raw footage into a final product lasting only few hours. And I'm so glad I did, this is really insightful and written by one of the great editors of our time! It's a quick read, probably only a few hours from front to back, so there's really no reason at all not to pick it up and read it. While I may have gotten a few glimpses of insight, I would have been asking the book to be something other than it is rather than hearing what it has to say.Murch treats the reader to a wonderful ride through the aesthetics and practical concerns of cutting film. The rest is just Murch going on and on with 'clever' analogies to explain what editing is to an audience that maybe never before thought about the fact that movies are edited at all.
