9781471677724: The Editing of Star Wars: How Cutting Created a Classic

'The Editing of Star Wars: How Cutting Created a Classic' is a close reading of the editing in the 1977 film 'Star Wars: A New Hope', written by Linton Davies. It's based around the idea that editing decisions are not made in the abstract, but within the context of the rest of the film, and an analysis of them should work the same way. Star Wars is without doubt one of the most beloved works in the history of cinema, and certainly one of the most discussed. The mass of secondary material, from behind-the-scenes documentaries to cast & crew interviews, makes it a perfect candidate for an analysis that's about what's left out as much as what stayed in. Whether you're an editor, a Star Wars fan or just someone interested in learning more about what really makes films tick, this short, educational book will help you look at the art of filmmaking in a new way.
