Shoot for the Edit

Posted on Apr 21, 2007

Nelson, here.

I’ve gotten lots of e-mails of people asking me what does “shoot for the edit” mean or where did the phrase come from.

From the book “Visons of Armageddon,” Michael states:

“Coming out of music videos and commercials, I learned how to shoot very quickly and also make something look good. One of my knacks is shooting for the edit, basically editing things in my mind.”

So there you have it.
