Cinema began as a novelty – projecting dancing shadows on a screen of simple every day scenes. But through the contributions of talented artists, a new cinematic language of editing emerged. Trace the development of editing from The Lumiere Brothers through Georges Méliès, Edwin S. Porter, and D.W Griffith.

As a historian I’m constantly amazed at the parallels that exist between the study of film and the study of history. I’ve used film and film history numerous times in my work to illustrate various ideas and principles. In relation to this video I see the analogy between editing and the concept concerning the construction of the narrative in historical writing. In both ideas and images are deliberately chosen to make the narrative. However I’m reminded of the French philosopher Jacques Derrida and his concept of “deconstruction”, in which he would discuss the unnatural aspects or artificiality of the situation. In this case both film editing and the construction of the narrative in historical writing involve making deliberate choices to advance an idea. There is a documentary about Derrida on YouTube that explains in his words far better than I can!
