I don’t remember “Children of Men” to be such a slow edit – I guess that’s a testament to the power of it’s editing. On the other hand, I definitely remember Taken 2, and not exactly with the same fondness.

I wonder what was the ASL of Bourne series!:p
@Charlie, “Children of Men” used extremely long takes! There was a lot of explosions and action during those shots, that’s probably why you didn’t notice 🙂

How are you figuring this out?
I would love to know if you have an automated way?
And, how you figured out the shots in films as well.

Tim – Some of the films I measured myself and the others I used the research of Barry Salt and Cinemetrics.
I storyboard movies all the time, (using screenshots). I go through them frame by frame, and make up shot lists of what they filmed, etc.
I was reeeeally hoping you were going to have some magic automated way of figuring out edits 🙂
