Oh my God! I posted a new video to my YouTube channel, Reel Busy Editing, and forgot to write a blog post about it. Where has my mind been?
Anyway, the new video, which you can conveniently view below, takes on Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. Here’s a rundown of the contents of the new video:
First, I show why injecting humor into a scene for the sake of having humor in the scene simply doesn’t work.
Second, this advice is extended to removing the bad humor present in the film.
Third, I show how reorganizing a scene can both simplify and add a sense of order to it.
Finally, we look at a scene with some extraneous dialogue, remove said extraneous dialogue, and end on a strong line of dialogue.
I hope you enjoy the video. Happy writing and editing! 🙂
