Film and intuition : an exploration of rhythm, pace, and the moving image.
Well-edited films are deeply rooted in the concepts of rhythm and pace. Many film editors argue that this sense of rhythm and pace is born out of a generalized sense of “intuition.” This concept of intuition is very rarely explored in academic scholarship. This paper explores and deconstructs the concept of the film editor’s intuition into definable methods of acquisition and usage. These methods are formed through the development of both a theoretical and practical frameworks.
