Production Tip: How to Edit a Fight Scene for Rhythm and Pacing

first_imgTips and TricksBeyond editing rhythm, you may need to touch up the footage a bit with some speed control. Sometimes you need to speed up footage even of highly skilled performers to create a consistent and compelling speed throughout the fight. But beware! Don’t go overboard. Speeding up the footage beyond 106 percent will definitely let the audience know that you’ve done something artificial (remember, the editor wants their work to remain invisible).Even Jackie Chan is guilty of this. Notice the speed of the hotel fight from Project A. It’s enough to feel unnatural.Don’t uniformly speed up every single shot. In fact, sometimes you only need to speed up certain moves. A good trick for that is speed ramping. You can find some in-depth tutorials online for speed ramping, but here’s a quick breakdown for Premiere Pro CC.Don’t speed it up too much, and ease in and out of the the speed ramp. You still want the scene to feel natural.Another technique that’s been gaining popularity is removing a single frame around the point of impact of a punch or a kick. When done well, it can make the scene feel faster and more powerful. Personally I find that it can often be visually jarring (which some directors may want), but you can still use it to great effect. An excellent example of this is from Freddie Wong’s “Whose Gun is it, Anyway?” YouTube short.If you look closely, you’ll just barely notice a missing frame to make the head butt look faster and more brutal.As with all things in film, editing is an art. There are no strict guidelines on how to make something look good. Sometimes, especially with a fight scene, you’ll be going back and forth on each clip, cutting it down by two or three frames or adding back two or three frames, to get that rhythm just right.I want to leave you with some inspiration. Not only is this fight beautifully choreographed and shot, but the editing is top notch. It communicates all the characters’ emotions and fighting techniques clearly, creating a fast-paced scene without short, fast cuts, and it creates tension as it plays with its rhythm Good fight scenes need vision, planning, and careful choreography. But ultimately, they depend on the edit for their power.A good fight scene can add energy and power to your film or video project. Seeing the hero rise up against their foes and take them down with excellent choreography can be a really exciting and emotional moment. But a key element to any fight scene is the editing, so let’s take a look at how to do it.Pre-ProductionIf you haven’t shot your fight scene yet, check out my earlier article “Directing Fight Cinematography: The Right Way and the Wrong Way” for some direction on the production side of the fight. Once you’re caught up, you’ll be set up to shoot a quality action piece.Image via “Choreographing A Fight Scene With A Hollywood Stunt Man.”But perhaps you’ve already shot your scene — or you’re editing someone else’s fight. What then?If you’re fortunate enough to join the project before production begins, then speak with the director, and make sure that each new shot in the fight scene begins with the last punch or kick from the previous shot. This will help everything flow together nicely in the edit and avoid the talent stalling at the beginning of each cut.If the director hasn’t already edited a rough version of the fight from rehearsal footage, then they may not have a clear picture of the edit they want to see. If so, get the director to shoot as much coverage as possible from a variety of angles. This will give you room to play in the edit and get a good cut of the fight.Editing RhythmIf your director does have a clear vision of the edit, then your job is a little easier. Take their direction and refine the fight. But if they just hand you hours of footage from various angles with the instruction to “Cut this together,” then it’s a bit trickier.After watching the footage, you’ll be able to tell pretty quickly if the performers are talented martial artists or not. If they are, then I recommend longer cuts to showcase their skill. That doesn’t mean each cut needs to be ten seconds, but give it a little breathing room when you can.If the performers aren’t that great, then you may need to use really short cuts and fast edits. Take a look at the ridiculous opening to xXx: The Return of Xander Cage. While the edit for Donnie Yen, who is a very talented martial artist, doesn’t involve super-long sequences, the cuts are a bit longer, and the camera work is smooth. But you’ll notice a stark contrast in the same scene when his British cohort rushes out of the elevator.When Yen’s cohort appears, the camera suddenly becomes very shaky, and the edits become super fast. Too fast for comfort — everything feels jarring and rushed. But a fight scene with fast cuts doesn’t have to be a bad thing! If the footage is shot well, then the fight can still feel really good. However we have to keep rhythm and pacing in mind.When I approach editing, I see the edits almost like music. The timing between cuts has a natural rhythm. No, I don’t time out each shot like a piece of sheet music; I feel it out. If the edits suddenly become super-fast-paced and quick, it’s like someone smashing the keys in the middle of the Moonlight Sonata. If your fight is or has to be cut with short takes and fast edits, then ease in and out of it.Check out this scene from Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol. Notice how the editing pace slowly increases as the fight progresses instead of suddenly becoming fast-paced with a single cut (as in the xXx scene).

How to seed smart cities

first_imgIn his Budget speech, Arun Jaitley reiterated the NDA Government’s plan to build a hundred ‘smart cities’, presumably by upgrading and expanding existing towns and raising a few new urban centres. The finance minister also announced five new IITs, as many IIMs and four AIIMS-pattern institutions. Fine proposals except these,In his Budget speech, Arun Jaitley reiterated the NDA Government’s plan to build a hundred ‘smart cities’, presumably by upgrading and expanding existing towns and raising a few new urban centres. The finance minister also announced five new IITs, as many IIMs and four AIIMS-pattern institutions. Fine proposals except these will be seen as separate, mutually exclusive projects during implementation. That would be a pity, for these are inextricably linked.Universities, for instance, are critical to making cities successful. It is almost impossible to imagine Boston, US, without Harvard, MIT and other institutions clustered in and around the Boston-Cambridge area. In Britain, Oxford and Cambridge are vibrant towns largely because they host the two famous universities. Indeed, many global cities such as London and New York would be much diminished without LSE, LBS, Columbia University, NYU. Rather than being walled off from the rest of the two cities, these institutions are an integral part of their urban ecosystems.Newly successful cities such as Singapore too have invested heavily in universities, think tanks and research institutes, not just as centres for intellectual activity but as part of the wider urban ecosystem. Indeed, when the country’s government planned the Singapore Management University, it set it up in the middle of the city. The city benefits from the “urban buzz” brought by young people while the university profits from being close to state and corporate institutions.Contrast this with Indian planners’ idea of academic institutions: merely places for teaching students that have little direct link with the daily functioning of the city. This is so because they see town projects as mechanical silos and do not think in terms of organic ecosystems. Thus, universities built after Independence were housed in sealed-off campuses, often in remote places, that discourage interaction with the city. Modelled on a socialist-era factory township, their walls continue to isolate them socially and intellectually even where the cities have expanded to surround them. This is why Kanpur and Kharagpur benefit little from being home to a prestigious institution like an IIT. Even in Delhi and Mumbai, IITs are closed worlds. Before Independence, on the other hand, universities were seen as part of the urban fabric. The colleges of Bombay and Calcutta were built into the city much like those of London. Allahabad and Aligarh were driven largely by their vibrant universities, much like Oxford and Cambridge.advertisementWhenever I ask Indian officials and planners about ‘smart cities’, I get a laundry list of hardware infrastructure that is needed: state-of-the-art public transportation, smart power grids and so on. This is indeed important, but it overlooks the fact that cities are ultimately about people, not buildings. Successful cities are those that can cluster human capital and encourage innovation, creativity and exchange of ideas. To be ‘smart’, therefore, cities need both hardware and software. Universities are an essential part of this software. This is why great cities of the past-Athens, Florence, Constantinople, Rome, Alexandria, Ujjain, Varanasi-were almost always also great intellectual centres. They attracted talent, encouraged the churn of ideas and triggered innovation. Translated in modern terms, universities do not just attract young people to cities but provide venues for conferences, seminars, cultural and sporting events enabling human interaction that makes for lively urban clusters.Now that the Government has announced its intention to build new academic institutes, the focus will likely be on getting large tracts of land and constructing standalone buildings. If anything, success will be measured by how much land has been acquired. This is wasteful, and not just at one level.First, this approach requires unnecessary acquisition of productive farm and forest land. Why do we need hundreds of acres to educate a few thousand students? As Jaitley would know, his alma mater, Shri Ram College of Commerce, runs one of India’s top colleges on just 17 acres. There are many top-notch institutions around the world that operate from much less. Second, a standalone institute requires the creation of expensive infrastructure in isolated locations, including staff housing, convocation halls, seminar rooms and so on. But, how often will the convocation hall be used? In a city location, these facilities would have added to the overall urban infrastructure. Moreover, such remote campuses are inconsiderate of the social and career needs of the families of the faculty and staff, a major constraint to finding good faculty. We can’t envision universities as industrial-era factory townships where wives stay at home and children study in the company school. Finally, and most damagingly from an urban perspective, these isolated campuses are unable to add to the ecosystem. Students come and they leave, so human capital does not accumulate in the host city.advertisementThe Government should, therefore, consider using new institutions to seed the ‘smart cities’. This would mean weaving new IITs, IIMs and AIIMSs into the surrounding urban fabric. This may look messy on a master plan drawing board but, on the ground, it would create cities that are vibrant and, indeed, smart.Sanjeev Sanyal is an economist, writer and urban theoristlast_img read more

Hibernia operator fined 80k after pleading guilty in crude oil spill

first_imgST. JOHN’S, N.L. – The company that runs the Hibernia platform off Newfoundland has pleaded guilty after it continued to operate despite a leak in 2013 that spilled about 6,000 litres of crude oil into the North Atlantic.The Hibernia Management and Development Company was fined $80,000 and ordered to pay $170,000 into the federal Environmental Damages Fund.The company “deeply regrets this spill occurred,” spokeswoman Margot Bruce-O’Connell said Friday in an emailed statement. “The Hibernia offshore and onshore workforce is committed to operating in an environmentally responsible manner.“The cause of the incident was due to equipment failure, although the offshore loading system equipment was newly installed in 2012.”Hibernia is located 315 kilometres east of St. John’s and sits in 82 metres of water.Newfoundland and Labrador’s offshore petroleum regulator announced in 2015 it had laid charges in connection with the spill.An agreed statement of facts says about 6,000 litres of crude oil leaked from Hibernia’s offshore loading system starting on Dec. 27, 2013.It describes “a persistent sheen” that the company observed on the surface of the sea close to a valve it didn’t realize was seeping. Instead of shutting down operations, it finished loading a tanker on Dec. 28.The leak was ultimately blamed on “undetected valve failures” — including a “false closure signal” emitted by one particular valve. A supply vessel fully sealed it about five days later on Jan. 1, 2014.Bruce-O’Connell said the company improved its operating, inspection and maintenance procedures after the spill.It was convicted under the Canada-Newfoundland Atlantic Accord Implementation Act.“Operations ceased, but resumed without ensuring that it could be done without causing pollution,” the Canada-Newfoundland and Labrador Offshore Petroleum Board said Friday in a statement.The shareholders of the Hibernia Management and Development Company are ExxonMobil Canada (33 per cent), Chevron Canada Resources (27 per cent), Suncor (20 per cent), Canada Hibernia Holding Corporation (8.5 per cent), Murphy Oil (6.5 per cent) and Statoil Canada Ltd. (five per cent).last_img read more
