    Classy product

    This small book contains a wealth of first-hand knowledge about the mysteries of giving birth to a film. I think it is of immense value to professionals & film buffs alike.
    WALTER MURCH is the only editor I know who actually sleeps with his films. In fact, Murch has a love affair with every film he's involved with. "IN THE BLINK OF AN EYE" is his chronicle passions. It's where he finally tells us some of the intimate details of these affairs. Not for those who cannot love film.

The book is divided into two parts i.e the film editing in which you ...

    A must read for all film students.

    A succinct account of a brilliant film editor's views and theories about all that goes into editing a film. This is not a 'how to' book, it is a book for those who seek to understand the organic nature of cinema and how an editor must help relay it on screen.
