free chapters from Karen Pearlman’s Cutting Rhythms

I was listening to an interview with Karen Pearlman on the Art of the Guillotine podcast, and Gordon (the host) mentioned that there were a couple of sample chapters from Karen’s book Cutting Rhythms: Shaping the Film Edit on the site. Based on what I was hearing in the interview, I knew that I definitely wanted to read those chapters. I’m glad that I did.

Pearlman is a film and video editor whose early career was in dance, and she brings her ideas and experience about choreography, rhythm, and the direct connection between body and emotion into her editing.

She has many useful and interesting suggestions regarding how the editor can synchronize with the material and find the rhythms inherent in it, as well as how to create specific responses in an audience by manipulating their natural tendencies to synchronize with certain things occurring on screen. Her ideas of timing, pacing, rhythm, and trajectory don’t come from theory as much as they come from years of practice in a closely related and very physical and musical art form.
