On its most fundamental level, film editing is the art, technique, and practice of bringing shots into an orderly sequence.
The film editor works with the original raw footage of a film, selecting shots and combining them into sequences to create a finished motion picture. Film editing is often referred to as the “invisible art” because when it is well-practiced, the viewer can become so engaged that he or she is not aware of the editor’s work.
