In your discussion, focus on the editing in Psycho. Identify how one of the following elements of editing plays a significant part in one of the scenes in the film:
- Collage (comparison/contrast of imagery)
- Tempo (shot length and transitions)
- Timing (coordinating cutting, condensing and expanding time)
- Use of space (shot/reverse shot, eyeline match, group dynamics, cutaways, continuity)
Bring the film up at ELMS and stream it to find the scene you wish to discuss.
Pick a spokesperson and note-taker to summarize for the class your discussion when we re-convene to discuss the film as a big group.
