Eisenstein was a pioneer in the use of montage, a specific use of film editing. He and his contemporary, Lev Kuleshov, two of the earliest film theorists, argued that montage was the essence of the cinema. His articles and books — particularly Film Form and The Film Sense — explain the significance of montage in detail.

READ MORE IF CONFUSED ——————————————————————————————- Sooo this is a video im entering into a film festival for tomorrow, March 17th. Didn’t plan on putting it on youtube because you won’t understand one part. This video is meant to be interactive. At the festival, i will be wearing the same attire i am in the video and will be interacting with myself on screen, to give the video a real/interactive feel. Its a new innovative idea im bringing to the table that no one has seen at this place yet so i hope to get some good reactions 😛 Funny thing about this video, i filmed this quickly on sunday with Jarrett and Emily and didnt decide to enter this until today. I crammed editing this during classes and after school and finished editing everything after about an hour and a half. So basically what im saying is, this is a quick edit that miraculously got finished. My teacher was dead set on bringing one of my other videos that had more artistic value but i thought it was crap. In place of it im entering this 😛 Have any questions? leave a comment below!
