Chapter 3. Shooting > Takes and Repetition

Takes and Repetition

Life is extremely repetitious. It also moves at a much slower pace than movies and television would lead us to believe. In the real world, we have long periods of silence and long moments when we are thinking, not doing. And then there are the moments when you are engaged in some activity that is itself highly repetitious in nature. You usually don't notice these things while they are happening, but when you remove yourself and watch—particularly while shooting a camera that is recording 30 snapshots every second—you will notice.

This repetition is what makes shooting editable video so easy. Repetition creates the equivalent of “takes,” and you get to choose which takes will represent the action as a whole. In fact, the more repetitious something is, the easier it is to edit a video that represents it.
