scor·se·se ed·it

"Creating the impression of continuous action is how we tell stories in time. But there is something else for me.

It's what I think of as the heart of cinema because every time I get into the editing room I’m struck by it all over again... You take one image and you put it together with another image and there’s a third phantom event that happens in the mind's eye.You can call it an image or maybe a thought or a sensation. Something happens that is absolutely unique to this particular combination or collision of moving images and if you take a frame away from one shot or you add a couple of frames to the other shot the image in the mind’s eye changes. This will always be a wonder to me."

~ Martin Scorsese
