The Importance of Narrative Ellipsis In Editing

"Above all, by not affording your audience certain bits of information and omitting details that conventional wisdom may deem important, you have the opportunity to instill your work with mystery, because ultimately, the suggestion of mystery is what the most unique movies supply."

What filmmakers and editors choose to leave out of their film is equally as important as what they choose to keep. Actually, it may even be more important.

About Bob Richman: Bob began his film career working with vérité pioneers Albert and David Maysles, quickly transitioning from production assistant to camera assistant then operator. Finally he made the leap to director of photography on the Maysles’ "Umbrellas," which chronicled artist Christo’s installation of three thousand umbrellas north of Los Angeles and Tokyo. Today, Richman is an Emmy-nominated and Sundance award-winning cinematographer on almost a hundred documentaries including: Davis Guggenheim’s "An Inconvenient Truth" and "Waiting for Superman," Nathaniel Kahn’s "My Architect," Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky’s HBO films "Paradise Lost" 1, 2 & 3 and "Metallica: Some Kinda Monster," RJ Cutler’s "The September Issue," "Oprah’s Master Class" and Sundance Channel’s "Iconoclasts."

About Filmmaker U: Before the age of digital mentorship played a key role in film crews, post crews, and filmmaker’s career development. Places like the cutting room were hubs for passing on techniques, ideas, war stories, teamwork, and developing relationships that would help you evolve your career. You would move from trainee to assistant, and eventually, the day would come where you became a full-fledged DP, Editor, Filmmaker, or any other position in the film industry.

Pro’s who had worked years and were coming close to the end of their career delighted in sharing the knowledge, techniques, tricks, and ideas, they had learned over the decades. However, with this digital age, young film professionals are thrust into positions without having the chance to learn from those at the top of their game.

Filmmaker U was created to help fill this void in the modern-day film industry. This online education series will bring the best in the business from behind the camera, to any aspiring media artist who can no longer obtain this type of apprenticeship.
