Combining image and sound to create something more than the individual parts is the definition of film editing. I chose to use vintage news footage of actual deaths and fused it with a remix of music by Jimi Hendrix and Muse. I find the result emotional, disturbing and raw. Is it art or exploitative? Beautiful or morbid? Only you can be the judge of that… NSFW

 

 

The online historical archives of British Pathé contain countless news reel films covering war, tragedies, accidents and other historic events. Some of these reports document the last moments of peoples lives. The camera does not lie. Life can be both beautiful and horrible…and sometimes these extremes intermingle in a split second.

Welcome to the launch of my first official info packed blog post for my new site!

On 01, Feb 2011 | No Comments | In Editing, Uncategorized | By vashi


The first time I met Shane was at Bandito Brothers last year, when he and the Director Po Chan asked me to edit “The Last 3 Minutes.” I had worked for the Banditos as a freelance editor for 3 years and had cut dozens of projects there, but never crossed paths with Shane. When I did get a chance to meet him, I realized that this man is a force of nature and has more enthusiasm for filmmaking and sharing his knowledge than anyone I’ve ever met. He asked me to guest blog about editing, so allow me to pull the curtain back on the workflow, mindset and process of Editing Shane…
