Editing With Rhythm

This lesson will teach you three simple steps on how to express feeling through rhythm and pacing.

  • Use music for the foundation of establishing pace. The beats can act as a great starting point for cutting down your footage.
  • Observe, and adjust pacing accordingly. Think about the story you want to tell, and how you want viewers to feel.
  • Create an X-factor to inject uniqueness into your edits. For example: surprising the viewer by breaking a rhythm that you previously established.
  • Get inspired by paying attention to videos and films, and how pacing contributes to the feelings evoked.
