Reviews

"From D.W. Griffin to MTV, from silent movies to action films, Dancyger explores not only history, techniques, and the social aspects of film and video, but he also looks at how technology has affected film and video making and editing. This isn't a quick read but definitely worthwhile if you want to gain an understanding of what it takes to be an excellent director and editor." -Theano Nikitas, Camcorder & ComputerVideo

--Sam Pollard, film editor, Girl 6, Clockers, Mo Better Blues

"...a thoroughly "reader friendly" introduction and survey of proven editing techniques and how those techniques influence the editing process..." - The Bookwatch, Sept. 2006"
