Manipulation, Symbolism and the Making of an Editing Renegade: In Conversation With Lasse Järvi Part 2

by Paddy Bird on
November 12, 2020

It is rare to hear an editor talk about negatively perceived editing issues, like manipulation, in such a frank and honest way. This week Lasse Järvi does that and more in the second part of our epic interview with the maverick documentary editor.

Lasse talks about the weaknesses and strengths of documentary thinking, what can be taken from drama in terms of structural techniques, and his thoughts on visual symbolism.

A masterclass in editing theory in itself, our chat with Lasse is full of insights, wisdom and laughs. I know you’re going to love it as much as I did!

BOOTCAMP

The Genius of Intercutting

Saturday, July 3, 3PM BST

Intercutting is such a valuable part of the editing process and mastering it gives us an incredibly high-end vision of what's possible in any kind of sequence. Our ability to build great structure, intelligence, journalism and style when we weave visual and narrative elements together are skills that every director is attracted to.

You will not be the same editor after this month's Bootcamp as these are structural skills that separate us from the everyday YouTube editor who's just learnt the software. We are going to teach you all of the laws, logic and nuances of this powerful part of editing.
