When people talk about the movie making process it usually goes actors > directors > producers in terms of who gets brought up the most. The average person is content to see what actor is going to be in which film and when. Real movie people most likely follow directors more than actors. People who are in the business follow producers.
But what about editors, and the editing process? It’s hard to describe how important it is and it literally shapes the audience’s experience. For instance the “shaky cam” style filmmaking is meant to keep you on the edge of your seat and off balance. Long slow editing is meant to focus the audience in on what may or may not be important on screen. With action movies the shaky cam style has been dominating for years, but hopefully Mad Max: Fury Road has rung its death bell.
How? Check out the video below. It was made by Vashi Nedomansky and features Fury Road side by side with no less than 4 other films played at 12X speed. The point of all of this? To show how Fury Road, even at 12X speed, is comprehensible compared to other action films while being just as, if not more, exciting.
It is an eye opening yet weird experience. Check it out, and let us know what you think in the comments.
