How Holding Long and Cutting Short Affect Story | Creative Planet Network

In the below video, Cinefex examines how both holding long and cutting short in editing can greatly affect how a story is perceived. The video examines two very different films, Ida and No Country for Old Men, to get its point across. In Ida, the main character has decided to kill herself and the long shots of her room, with the window she’s eventually going to jump out of in the center, imbues the window with meaning before the shocking act even takes place.
