Internet Issues Feedback


  • My less than 1-minute film is about the struggles of internet during online classes. I showed the sages of frustration and then asking friends if their internet was out too.


A student is trying to prepare for an important test but her internet cuts out.

Intent / Goals

  • FOR YOU:  My goal was to make sure the edits were clear and actually helpful for the film. I wanted to try out edits that I hadn’t already known about.
  • FOR THE PROJECT: I wanted viewers to feel how boring online classes are especially when the internet isn’t working well.


  • I watched the 13 edits youtube video over and over again to make sure I understood it.
  • What about them was interesting, compelling, and qualified them to be studied by you?
    • I wanted to make sure I fully knew the differences between the edits and how I could actually use them.


  • Write two questions for the audience
  • Are the edits actually useful and noticeable?
  • Is the idea behind the film clear?


  • “It made sense to me, I got it” -Brian
  • “Montage was great” -Abby
  • “I love that you cut to the computer and cut to yourself” -Emily

Evidence of Editing: The King of Staten Island (2020) – Tattooing a Child Scene

  • What about editing language understanding did you notice?
    • I noticed L and J cuts while the kid was getting the tattoo. 
    • I noticed there was a lot of emotion shown as the scene was appearing.
    • I noticed there was a lot of rhythm involved in order to make the cuts make sense and flow well.
  • What did you like about the film clip?
    • I liked how the cuts very very quick and not noticeable in order to make the clip appear smoother.
    • I like how the last cut shows one of the guys as a close up saying he doesn’t want to be friends with them anymore.
  • What question do you have from what you saw?
    • What other techniques were used in order to make the cuts flow smoothly? 
  • What I learned from this week’s exercise is I am now able to watch a clip from a film and notice what went into editing choices and how they make the film flow.
