Good Editing is Not Invisible

Editing is often called the ‚art of the invisible‘, but Dr Karen Pearlman, author of Cutting Rhythms, Shaping the Film Edit, proposes that actually that good editing is not invisible. Drawing on theory from her book she introduces the idea that we ’see‘ editing when we see the flow of movement  – the movement of events, emotions, images and sounds. Through discussion, interactive play and screening of short examples of different kinds of editing, this montage forum gets participants seeing editing, talking about editing and developing skills to shape editing as a flow of movement.

Editing Dance

In her book Cutting Rhythms, Shaping the Film Edit, Dr Karen Pearlman draws on her background as an editor and a dancer to propose that  editing is a form of choreography.  In this montage forum, she and her partner Richard James Allen, of award winning and critically acclaimed Physical TV Company, will screen a selection of their short dancefilms and talk about the special processes and techniques of editing physical movement to bring dance onscreen to life.


Dr Karen Pearlman, author of Cutting Rhythms, Shaping the Film Edit (Focal Press, 2009) is known for her pioneering work in articulating underlying principles concerning what rhythm in film is, how it is shaped and the purpose it serves in modulating cycles of tension and release for viewers. The focus of her research and teaching as Head of Screen Studies at the Australian Film, Television and Radio School is on the connection of theory and practice and making conceptual thinking accessible and useful to practitioners. Many of her ideas about rhythm, editing, and affect derive from her career as a professional dancer on the opera house stages of the world with the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company, and dancing and choreographing in the theatres, lofts and experimental dance venues of Australia, the USA and Europe. As well as using her understanding of kinesthetic empathy in her theorizing, she applies her choreographic sensibility to her own editing and dramaturgy of the multi award winning dance on screen works made by The Physical TV Company, which she co-directs with Richard James Allen. In 2009 Dr Pearlman was elected President of The Australian Screen Editors Guild (ASE).
