Recently I had the pleasure to discover two new blogs that cover the arena of editing. Alex Gollner’s Editing Organanized (yes, misspelled on purpose) and Norman Hollyn’s Hollyn-wood

A recent article on Hollyn-wood goes into detail on how we are editors, not “cutters,” and how the impact of how we structure a scene adds to the overall story. We don’t just cut together the footage according to the script…often we do and find that they script is wrong. So we need to have a good sense of story and visual structure to help the script be what it wants to be.

It’s a good read.

Editing Organazized has great FCP tips, like this one and that one…both showing how to do great slow motion with Final Cut Pro.
