Why Editing Matters

Even though this music video is nothing new, I think it is a great representation of skillful editing and the power of black and white. Bruno Mars came out with the song “That’s What I Like” and released a music video to go along with it on youtube. The video is simply him facing the camera and dancing by himself. The reason the video sticks out in the mind however is because of the minimalist black and white editing. Every movement and beat is complimented with an accent, usually lines or block like drawings. This just goes to show that just like in our homework, you don’t need a ton of bells and whistles for a piece to have impact.
