Today is edited without assembly, Fatal Error, as is the meaning you give to the production. The invisible part that makes consistency in the message you want to convey through the film sequences that make up the.
Formerly editing in film and television was a very laborious process, hand as it was still obviously very expensive and inaccessible to most people. Now. Much has changed in recent years, up to today where any computer can have a digital video editor, where to make cuts and upload to the Internet for dissemination. Here then arises a problem that I observed in my years in the profession until now. Mostly editing videos but produces no assembly. And you might be wondering what is the assembly? Why is it so important?
Before the assembly had two senses.
- Physical Mounting: He was making the cuts, effects and transitions among other things.
- The Audiovisual Installation: "It can be defined as management and rhythmic narrative of the objective elements of the story. It consists in choosing (before recording the film the movie), order and attach a selection of drawings to record, as an idea and a particular dynamic, from a script, the idea of the director and the editor's contribution. "
Sánchez-Biosca, Vicente (1993). Film editing. Paidós. 2edition.
The assembly today is not how you will be observing physical and, but the form and rhythms that you'll give the scenes. The first type of assembly and is different today but the second, continues and each time it uses less giving rise to production content technically bright but poorly expressed and linearity which lowers the quality of the final product.
Types of assembly there are:
- Mounting classic narrative or: the facts, or both chronologically or by jumping to the future (flash-forward) and the past (flash-back). When the film is a guide to the characters from point A to point B without breaking much of the road. It is the most anticipated events of having a movie.
- Intellectual montage: is when you use a lot of symbolism with jacks loose at best have no direct relationship between them but that together give a message that might not otherwise be transmitted. It is widely used in advertising or when trying to report on social attitudes that lets you without words or with little use of them convey a powerful message across.
Example: Battleship Potemkin
- Creative or abstract assembly: order without regard to a specific timeline as a resource film, but as an entirely new operation, will try to give coherence, rate, action and beauty to the film work.
Example: Alice in Wonderland
- Mounting expressive: is marking time with quick action if action adventure or slower if it is slow but it is always important to note that sets the standard time.
Example: The image on the left is the Titanic and the right Indiana Jones
The production is not that they have to choose one type of mount and just do that. In fact, you can combine but there will be a montage that is more dominant than others to be consistent throughout the film.
I hope this can serve for your upcoming productions, for you to give depth and enhance your communication power.
