Everyone has been telling me to get this book and read it. They kept saying, "Get the Walter Murch book." "Have you read the Walter Murch book?"
So I did.
They were right.
If you are in any way interested in how movie editing is done, buy this Walter Murch book.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. I found out that Walter enjoyed playing with an audio tape recorder as a child. So did I.
I used to make tapes of songs and comedy bits with my first tape recorder. I'd spend hours with the record player and tape recorder.Murch suggestes that what you enjoyed doing when you were between the ages 9 and 11 is what you should be doing now.
It would sound something like this:
I'd say, "So Dick Nixon how do you feel?"
Then I played The Beatles, "I'm a loser."
I thought it was great.
Looking back on it, my interest in editing audio, at an early age, lead me into a career in radio production and now into video production.
Cut, Print, That's a wrap!
