This book is just amazing. As a self taught documentary filmmaker, I never had access to editing information this detailed. It’s my go to, A to Z editing bible. Extremely detailed and laid out in an easy to follow step by step manner.
I've been shooting, directing, and cutting nonfiction for 40 years. I thought I knew every trick. And a lot of them no one else did. Until I read Jacob's book. This is not just a gloss written by someone from the academic side. It is complete dissection from a high end working pro who has faced all the impossible choices many of us have and has taken time to "get it down" in print for everyone else. A must read for anyone who wants to not just cut, but direct or produce nonfiction work as well. And even fiction narratives. Many of the best and greatest fiction narrative editors began as and still work in documentaries. I bought 2, gave one to a younger editor I work with, and have helped, who took to it immediately, and the one I kept for myself I gave to an editor with 40 years experience, who loved it. Which means I will buy another for myself. Get this. The war stories from other editors in the book is worth it alone, and If one of Jacob's many many pieces of practical working advice save you even one day, or make the difference in one scene, you will be happy you did.
"Documentary Editing: Principles and Practice" provides techniques to strategically process footage into a compelling story. The information is accessible, clear and immediately applicable. It's in every way the practical high level editing course I wish I had as a kid. I've been cutting docs for over 20 years and our current project was defying our usual approach. Bricca's book is full of editing revelations. It also identifies techniques I've been using intuitively, but I didn't have the words to communicate them to my team. The book gave my team the common language we'd been missing to understand where we were in our edit and how to move forward. This is a comprehensive guide, soup to nuts, with in-the-trenches support from a working editor. There are also relevant cases studies with trick problem solving from finished films. I've returned to the book many times for support during a long post process. I will now start all my new projects by giving my interns and editors a copy. It has become my editing Tabula Rosa.
Still reading it. The quotes from experienced editors is a plus. So are the great examples of scenes from the writer's own and other documentaries. If you are an experienced editor, you will find some interesting new ways to look at your own process.
This is a fantastic book. A practical guide to documentary editing by a super-talented documentary editor at the top of the game. Bricca's also a professor who teaches documentary filmmaking, so not only does he have loads of professional practical experience, but he's great at explaining and teaching. I bought the book to learn about the specific processes of doc editing after previously making only narrative films -- and it has delivered in spades. Highly recommend!
This is a very thorough and user-friendly guide to documentary film editing - from initial organizational strategies to fine-cut editing techniques, Documentary Editing - Principles and Practice takes the reader through the entire process. I highly recommend it for anyone preparing to edit a film.
