Authors (myself included) select, consolidate, fragment, and redistribute information. Cultural practices relate people and ideas, and they can provide for a unified sketch of our perceived reality.
Film making can serve this very role, speaking to and also assembling our cultural norms and myths.
In light of the public presentation I gave last week, and the related post I published here on propaganda, I think that it’s interesting and fun to watch a couple of videos here.
The first one is a short video by Alfred Hitchcock on the theories of montage and editing that he uses. The second is a comic video play about authenticy and truth in theatre.
Since I’m traveling, I haven’t the time to write the usual detailed article. But I think these videos make for great viewing.
