Editing is far more than simply taking the footage and slapping it together for continuity. Editing is the final revision of the script that creates structure and form from an otherwise structureless mass of media. It creates a rhythm that an audience can subconsciously see and feel. Editing can create tension and release it. It can cause laughter or take it away in a heartbeat. Editing can be used to inform and audience, or deceive them. It melds the perfect music and transitions to complete the scene.
