#Filmproduction: 13 Creative Editing Techniques Every Video Editor Should Know

Picture the quick-cut transitions and comedic editing style of any Edgar Wright movie (the work of editor Chris Dickens, usually), the flash-bulb cuts and freeze frames of Martin Scorcese films (editor Thelma Schoonmaker) or the frantic and fabulous opening scene in City of God (editor Daniel Rezende). These are all different types of edits and cuts that one can make when putting together a story.
Once you master the edit types and learn why each one is important in different circumstances, you can make your projects more entertaining and your editing more efficient, and you can create a whole editing style of your own that reflects your creative side.
