Michael Frierson is a Professor in Media Studies at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. He is the author of Clay Animation: American Highlights 1908 to the Present (New York: Twayne, 1994), which won the McLaren-Lambart Award from the National Film Board of Canada for the Best Scholarly Book on Animation for 1995. He teaches film theory, film/video production and editing, and has produced, shot and edited short films for Nickelodeon, Children’s Television Workshop, MSN Video, and AT&T Blueroom.

A Primer on Film and Video Editing Theory offers an accessible, introductory guide to the issues underlying how editing creates meaning. In this book, Michael Frierson synthesizes the theories of the most prominent film editors and scholars, from Herbert Zettl and Noel Burch to the work of landmark Hollywood editors like Walter Murch and Edward Dmytryk. In so doing, he maps out a set of craft principles for readers, whether one is debating if a flashback reveals too much, if a certain cut clarifies or obscures the space of a scene, or if a shot needs to be trimmed. The book is grounded in the unity of theory and practice, looking beyond technical proficiency in a specific software to explain to readers how and why certain cuts work or don’t work. A companion website offers further resources, including video clips that readers can download and experiment with to illustrate specific editing concepts.
