The Kuleshov Effect: "a film editing effect; a mental phenomenon by which viewers derive more meaning from the interaction of two sequential shots than from a single shot in isolation."
 
 
Kuleshov demonstrated the necessity of considering montage as the basic tool of cinema art. In Kuleshov's view, the cinema consists of fragments and the assembly of those fragments, the assembly of elements which in reality are distinct. It is therefore not the content of the images in a film which is important, but their combination. The raw materials of such an art work need not be original, but are pre-fabricated elements which can be disassembled and re-assembled by the artist into new juxtapositions.

Now, compare the editing techniques from an earlier interview in Mike Wallace's career. Notice how the two converse with intelligent discourse. The editing cuts are few and questions are penetrating...
 
Notice how the camera zooms in on Rod from behind Mike's head and focus' in. 2 camera's both running 'live' from behind each of their shoulders.
 
What ever happened to clean reporting and intelligent writing?

Public domain interview with Rod Serling, creator of the Twilight Zone. Uploaded because we indie game developers can learn a lot from the parallels with early TV and the censorship and commercialization and the fight against it.

That's a pretty good angle to watch that video with. So I'll add to that with some basic journalistic techniques:

 

I find it ironic that an inverted pyramid is the structure used for journalists to write their stories from. The graph explains the model quite clear but I think a little color may be in order.

This is done on purpose because they know that most people will just read a few paragraphs of a story. First off, they usually start out with what is known as a lede/lead. This is the part that asks questions who, what, when, when, why, and how.

News journalists always begin their stories with a lead. This is a short bit maybe two or three sentences long. It supposed to entice the reader with a statement of point or main focus of the story. Reporters know they have to get the audience right at the start. Throw in a few tasty 'tweets' to begin the story and the reader might just read the rest of the story. That's called a 'hard news' lead. Sometimes leads can just be a summary of just the basics. That's when a nut graph comes into play. Nut graphs grab you by the balls and give you the main focus point on the second or third paragraph. Once you get past that the main body is composed with the details of the story and then the kicker at the end. Driving the point of the story home.

Needless to say, it's a lot more involved than that. Tricks with words and phrases and how they're ordered does make a difference to an audience. Ever notice how a sermon is constructed? How about a book? In today's media driven environment it seems we're being fed an 'inverted' kind of truth. Quick tweets turned into timed paragraphs pumping primed images and printed words into our brains at an ever faster speed. This rinse and repeat cycle can get tedious and leave a mind pondering where do I REALLY get my thoughts from...

The TV?

A book?

A class?

Walking outside and observing the day?

 

Talking to people face to face about anything?

Too bad the media doesn't keep track of the deeper issues going on.
 
Always with the flash and dance effects and a myriad of special sauces to give it taste. 
 
Using issues that will swing a pendulum back and forth.
 
This keeps the hypnotism running.
