Most boring video ever, on intresting topic
Very well produced, thank you.
The only reason this channel doesn't have millions of subscribers is because the content is so smart that people get raged not understanding it all!
Gained so much knowledge Thank you sir
Sucks that a movie that created so many stereotypes that Blacks still face today is seen as a pioneering masterpiece in film. No wonder the industry is lacking so much diversity. Nice video though.
Sa fait du bien de savoir que c’est nous les français ont commencer sa.
HI!! thank you so much for this history lesson!! but i would like to ask, where do you get this information from, like the source materials, which book you read, or anything :) I would like to learn this too for my paper thesis about continuity editing! thank you so much!!
You can tell one videos I great when you go back and rewatch :)
First 11 minutes: wow this is really educational and good I like it!
Last couple minutes: haha racist man go brrr
Didn't cross cutting exist in The Great Train Robbery?
The Execution of Mary, Queen of Scots (1895) was the first film used Jump Cut to make queen beheaded. They invented the Jump Cut before George Méliès. Created by camera operator Alfred Clarke on 28 August 1895 at the Edison studio in New Jersey.
Brilliant material! Can't get enough! Cheers and bless you, sir!
An absolutely MASTER CLASS in a topic like editing that is not easy to understand at all, foremost when you are giving your first steps into de art of filmmaking. An essential class for any interested in filmmaking or even editing a simple video.
I love your videos man. I just want you to work on your delivery.
I'm pretty sure that Enoch Arden came out in 1911 and was not the first instance of Griffith using cross-cutting. Also, I wouldn't say that The Birth of a Nation was the first blockbuster, that would probably have been Dante's Inferno (1911) (if not then another Italian epic)
I feel far more confident for my Intro to Film midterm tomorrow after watching your video. Thank you!!
Why do american film buffs always skip from Méliès to Porter, as if the Brighton school never existed? James Williamson introduced the narrative techniques used by Porter in a 1901 film called Fire!, and the close-ups were introduced by George Albert Smith in films such as Grandma's Reading Glass (1900) or The Big Swallow (1901). Same for Griffith's continuity editing, which was first introduced by Smith in a film called The Kiss in the Tunnel (1899). Look it up. It's common knowledge. The brits did it first.
man just watched these videos makes me just wanna get a time machine to see what’s in it for me in my future! thanks so much dude for helping me obtain all of this free knowledge! priceless!
