The film industry is becoming much more competitive and graduates of film schools or film directing schools have more doors opened to them because of their film school or film directing school diploma or degree.
If a film school student wants to be directing films, producing films, editing films, or working in one of the multitudes of other jobs necessary to putting a film together, there is most likely a class for them.
A film school student should choose film classes based on this goal, because, while all film students will be given a general education in the basics, many good film schools will not only allow you to, but encourage you to become more specialized in one area of film studies.

  Film editing - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Film editing, also called montage, is the connecting of one or more shots to form a sequence, and the subsequent connecting of sequences to form an entire movie.
Film editing evolved from the process of a film editor physically cutting and taping together pieces of film, using a splicer and threading the film on a machine with a viewer such as a Moviola, or "flatbed" machine such as a Kem or Steenbeck.
Film editors often are responsible for pulling together all of the elements of story, dialogue, music, sound effects, visual effects, rhythm and pace of a film.

 Cinema -- Editing
When the editing is complete and the director and producer have approved the final version of the film, this final cut is sent to a negative matcher.
The negative matcher makes a negative of the film that exactly matches the final cut, and the negative is then sent to a film lab where prints are created.
When an editor was satisfied with the final film, he or she would create an edit decision list, a list of each shot in the film and its length.

 Editing
Editing is normally done in post-production, the period after the shooting of a film or tape during which the production is edited, dubbed, and prepared for distribution..
Sometimes, when working on a high-budget film, an editor may become involved in the preproduction stages of a project and may be invited to attend the actual shooting of some complicated scenes, but normally his role is confined to the cutting room.
The basic grammatical unit of the language of film is a shot and may range from a single frame taken from a fixed position to a setup involving complex camera movement to the complete roll of film in the camera (approximately 10 minutes in length.

 Film Editing and Painting
Film editing is ultimately the ideal combination of shots contained within the material that has been put unto the roll of film.
Editing entails assembling smaller and larger pieces, each of which carves a different time.

 Film Editing Glossary
A type of upright moviola which has no arms on it, is easier to take film on and off of, and is gentler on the film than a regular moviola, all of which facilitates its use as a cutting machine.
Editors who edit their films on flatbeds do not use editing benches as much as editors who cut on an upright since the flatbed itself functions as the bench for most of their editing work.
Since flatbed editing machines use film wound on cores, rather than on reels, this permits easy manipulation and projection of film cut on a flatbed without having to wind it all off the cores and onto take-up reels.

 Film Freak Central Interviews Editor Walter Murch (page 4)
I'd never cut a feature before, but I had edited documentaries and commercials, and he thought that it would be a good idea to have somebody putting the film together who knew what sound was all about, since that was the topic of the film.
Another challenge was that the whole film is told from Harry Caul's point-of-view, and he's confused a lot of the time, so we had to make the film interesting and understandable, even though the main character is confused about what is going on until the very end.
The sound editing, the cleaning up of the soundtracks, was done at Universal Studios, and then the final mix of the master track, this new master track, took about five days, also at Universal.

 Introduction to Film Editing
Edits should be smooth and easy on the eye; time and place should not change drastically from shot to shot.
Edits can be jarring, time and place can change abruptly, etc. Remember, you want to give the audience a lot of information in a short period of time – it should still make sense, but you want the audience to do some work.
Ask students as they watch the rough cut to think about where further edits might be made to help with continuity, or to add rhythm, etc. As students view their scenes, ask them to explain why they chose the editing techniques they did, and encourage other students to give them feedback regarding their choices.

Of the recent odd-couple film interview books (Cameron Crowe and Billy Wilder, Steven Soderbergh and Richard Lester), theirs is the most natural and comfortable pairing.
Ondaatje is evidently a sophisticated film fan, and in Oscar-winning editor Walter Murch, he has the perfect person for an interrogation, for Murch is that rarity in Hollywood—a Renaissance man with a far-ranging mind that goes far beyond the sheer subject of film and filmmaking.
As a director myself, this book humbles and reminds me that the film is ultimately brought to life during the editing process and the editor is the mid-wife.

 motion picture photography: Film Editing   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-27)
In the first decade of filmmaking, pioneers Georges Méliès and Edwin S. Porter found that the effect of motion could be warped, shooting the film at a slower speed than it was projected to produce a speeded-up image (and vice versa) which could be used for comical or fantastical purposes.
Griffith developed the use of the close-up, a full view of a detail within the larger image, often a hand, face, or object, the audience retaining the context of the scene into which the close-up was cut.
The initial codification of editing possibilities and the theory and application of it for aesthetic purposes began in the Soviet Union in the 1920s.
