S4E2. Scene Modelling: Understanding Creative Archetypes

Episode Summary

On this week’s show I’ll be talking about sequence archetypes/scene modelling. The benefits we gain as editors in analysing and categorising as many different scenes and sequences in other people’s work as possible, is incredibly useful. It widens our abilities and makes us better editors.

Episode Notes

We want to build a huge creative filing cabinet in our minds that we can apply to any set of raw footage that comes into our cutting room. I’ll be breaking down the key concepts, techniques and mindsets that we can use when researching and memorising these useful scene models.
