An (interesting take on) the impact of editing

I’m doing more training at the moment and whilst chatting about editing  I was reminded of a clip I had from Charlie Brooker’s Screen Wipe programme. As an intro to the impact editing has it’s pretty good and the reality show example is great. 

Someone else has uploaded it to Youtube so give it a watch (warning: there is a bit of bad language in this and a mention of Richard Madley)

  1. This is very interesting and for journalism hits hard on the ethics guidelines for us. Telling an interesting story or telling the real story. There is a lot of temptation to do the later. I have personally seen the later used by some photojournists to give their story a harder impact. They used all real sources but edited it for a darker and more sad story.

    Good stuff and funny vid though.
