The use of film editing to establish continuity, involving action moving from one sequence into another, is attributed to British film pioneer Robert W. , made in 1898 and one of the first films to feature more than one shot. 1' of 1896 was the first camera to feature reverse-cranking, which allowed the same film footage to be exposed several times and thereby to create super-positions and multiple exposures.
In the first shot, an elderly couple is outside an art exhibition having lunch and then follow other people inside through the door. One of the first films to use this technique, Georges Méliès's The Four Troublesome Heads from 1898, was produced with Paul's camera.
The film was the first American film with a plot, featuring action, and even a closeup of a hand pulling a fire alarm.
The film comprised a continuous narrative over seven scenes, rendered in a total of nine shots.
With the advent of digital editing, film editors and their assistants have become responsible for many areas of filmmaking that used to be the responsibility of others.
On its most fundamental level, film editing is the art, technique and practice of assembling shots into a coherent sequence.The film used the first "reverse angle" cut in film history. He also experimented with the close-up, and made perhaps the most extreme one of all in The Big Swallow, when his character approaches the camera and appears to swallow it.James Williamson concentrated on making films taking action from one place shown in one shot to the next shown in another shot in films like Stop Thief! These two filmmakers of the Brighton School also pioneered the editing of the film; they tinted their work with color and used trick photography to enhance the narrative.A live webcam at the upper station of the Gondola lift, showing the entire Markudjik ski center and the highest peak in Bulgaria - Musala - in the distance.Click to view the Markudjik ski center webcam live View the webcam in full size.
