Visual Editing: Principles and Techniques Videotape cassettes are factory sealed. The tape is never touched by human hands, nor should it be. A smudge of dirt or even the skin’s natural oils can damage not only the tape but also the recording and playback circuitry through which it passes. All editing is done electronically. The film is edited manually. The way tape works is this: sound and picture are encoded in magnetic particles on the tape’s surface by the record circuitry. Editing and Playback circuitry read this code to reconstitute the images and sounds. The sound and picture are on separate tracks, enabling tape editors to rearrange them independently of one another. « Tape gear is constantly being improved, being made lighter, more light- sensitive, more shockproof, more weather resistant and more flexible. However, the basic components remain the same and TV journalists must be familiar with them in order […]

Live Transmission: Control and the Televised Performance Scene A performance scene is a critical component of the music biopic, establishing links between the past and present, and between viewers and their memories of a particular band or (more often than not deceased) artist. Performances-whether revered or criticized-highlight memorable moments of a musical career and can motivate and structure the narrative of a music biopic. Gary R. Edgerton cites television as an especially influential medium for delivering music performances to viewers, arguing that it has “transformed the way tens of millions of viewers think about historical figures and events” through numerous nonfictional and fictional portrayals (1).
