Название: The Technique of Film and Video Editing, Fourth Edition: History, Theory, and Practice
Автор: Dancyger K.
This book provides an excellent overview of the history of editing - from its origins to where we are now. It also includes a substantial cross-section of specific genres: action, comedy, documentary, etc. It's true, as other reviews have pointed out, that the examples tend to be biased toward older films. I didn't have a problem with this for the most part. Many of these films are excellent and it makes for the perfect excuse for a rainy Sunday Netflix fest.
Dancyger's book is also strong on the theory of editing. I didn't agree with all his propositions, but they certainly got me thinking about my own editing projects and the editing technique of films I admire. Where the book falls a bit short is the practical side. I wasn't expecting a manual, but the book could use a few more real life examples and practical techniques - especially in the documentary chapters.
One last thing: this isn't a book to be read on its own. I gained the most from Dancyger's examples when I watched the films he refers to. If you don't borrow, buy or rent the movies and watch the referenced films you'll miss out on a major component.
