Flow State Functionality
In rock climbing we call the routes we take from the ground ‘bouldering problems.’ While these problems require a great deal of physical strength—strategy, sequence, and focus are ultimately paramount. Without such considerations, failure is almost guaranteed.
As is with climbing, good editing is predicated on strategy and sequence. With a great deal of experience, being deliberate about things becomes less explicit. I climb with intent without having to preconceive every movement, much as I frame certain shots while filming knowing that when editing, they will be effective.
