1. In her third music video (and the third I directed), Lana again plays multiple roles.

    As convict ALAN, the key to freedom is slipped through the cell door by his vivacious alter ego LANA, but no sooner has Alan escaped than Lana leads the cops straight to his hideout. When he's taken back to prison he realises the full deviousness of her plan: ESCAPEES WILL BE EXECUTED!

    Filmed, Edited and Directed by Nick Swinglehurst.

    Ever since we started recording people on film, another bunch of people have wanted to change that recording, to reframe and reinterpret its indelible truth into something that better serves the purpose of the filmmaker.

    This process is film editing. Usually it’s a force for good – making complex arguments accessible, making protracted events succinct, or simply for making a dull story more compelling.

    But the reversioning of the truth which is so intrinsic to editing, can be deceptive in the wrong hands. It started as a tool for propaganda and continues to manipulate audiences today.

    In this talk, I will demonstrate and explain some common tricks of the editing room – and make examples of some of their most nefarious abusers…
