Manchester University Press has published Don Fairservice's Film Editing: History, Theory and Practice: Looking at the Invisibile. Fairservice is an award-winning freelance film editor who has taught at The National Film and Television School and The Northern Film School, Leeds. His credits include a number of TV movies and miniseries, including The Railway Children, Deja Vu, The Scarlet Tunic, The Hanging Gale, and A Very British Coup, for which he won the BATFA TV Award for Best Editor in 1989.
The book devles into the film-editing craft, from the beginning of cinema to the present day, looking at not only the "hows" but also the "whys" of film editing. Fairservice explores the challenges to convention that began in the 1960s and which continue to the present day, including new digital technologies and the dominance of moving images and how they relate to film editing.
Film Editing: History, Theory and Practice is distributed exclusively in the U.S. by Palgrave. List price: $29.95.
