Abstract

From a film-making perspective music video is arguably foremost an editor’s medium. Yet the development and diversity of the editor’s craft has been obscured in academic discourse by reductive arguments about the impact of MTV (chiefly about pace). This excerpt from our research focus group on editing demonstrates that a more nuanced thesis about the influence, exchange and refinement of creative practices, the relationship of editing styles to genres, the impact of changes in editing technology, and the political economy of the music video industry is needed. The editors who participated in the focus group were Tony Kearns, Tom Lindsay, Art Jones, Dawn Shadforth, Julia Knight and Adam Dunlop.
