For my March Madness project, I wanted to address the process which goes on behind the scenes of creating a film, in specific the editing. I chose to focus on this aspect of filmmaking because I find editing enjoyable and wanted to create a project where I could incorporate the activity into my March Madness. I recognize the fact that on it’s own, the edits and cuts that go into the creation of a film are often ones which aren’t noticed by the viewer. In a compelling film, or video it is the editors objective to make choices that will positively impact the viewership experience, which often means taking attention away from the changes that have been made by the directors and producers of that film. From the start my plan and intentions for the direction of the project have stayed the same, however I had to make adjustments in order to make certain things work. For example, when I began, I didn’t take into consideration the wide scope of different categories of video editors that there are, like those who edit documentaries, fictional films, news footage, etc. This narrowed my search, but ultimately I found that talking to all different types of editors gave me the variety I needed in my search. They shared similar experiences about their work despite the different types of footage that they have edited. As I bring this project to a close, I understand far more about the experience of video editing as a profession, and the difficult work that goes into it, and hope that I am able to adequately portray that in my film.
