The Trailers for Ghostbusters (2016) and the Art of Editing Comedy
Tony Zhou

As an editor, I love this dissection, and I completely agree. Only one quibble: the phrase “That’s talent” should probably be “That’s skill.” Comedy probably requires some innate talent to approach, but the actual execution, as described here, is totally a skill that can be learned. I’m sure whoever cut this trailer worked very hard to do so.
