Why Does an Edit Feel Right? (According to Science) (13:00)

  • Emotional response rhythm in editing = “time + energy + movement, shaped by timing, pacing and trajectory phrasing” for the purpose of creating cycles of tension and release
  • Knowledge embodiment = connect yourself to the movement
  • Continual eye movement is not often best: smooth attention vs movement phrasing (rhythm)
  • Kinesthetic imagination – let the audience imagine the in-betweens

I often enjoy watching 2-person conversational commentaries.
