Rough Cut

The rough cut is the first cut of the film, edited usually according to the specifications of the script. At this stage, the editor is assembling the best moments from the footage that has been shot of each scene. There are different criteria for deciding what gets cut and how you take notes. In feature films, for example the maximum emotional impact on the viewer is an important editing point. Continuity of the drama of the story is also very important, as well as movements of actors and camera. Other criteria concern the two-dimensionality of the space on the screen, and the three-dimensional space in the movie scenes. The editor is often already working in parallel to the shooting on approved rushes enabling the director to optimize possibly reshoots of cut scenes on the existing sets. Rough cuts are usually available shortly after shooting offering an initial glimpse of the film at the end of each production day.
