  Film editor - ArticleWorld   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
A film editor is one of the most important people in creating a finished film, putting together all the different shots of the movie together into a sequence that has both form and function, to create a story.
Film editing began as a very simple and tedious process of taking each film strip, selecting viable shots, cutting them, and taping them together to create a story, using a viewer such as a Steenbeck or a Moviola.
The film editor has the unique and challenging task of taking different shots and assembling them together to create a coherent film, an enormously creative role, since in the hands of the film editor, the film takes on a shape, acquires feeling and character.

 Film Editor
On some films, the film editor is chosen before cast members and script doctors; people in Hollywood recognize that the skills of a good film editor can save a middling film.
While some editors stay removed from the project during the filming process so as not to steer the director away from his or her concept of the film, many of them do visit the director on set while production is under way.
In this case the film editor’s mission is to ensure that every single piece fits together and that everything “flows” as it should.

The editor receives the director when the latter is in a state of considerable anxiety and uncertainty, for the film though shot has yet to prove itself.
Because every film is created as an experience for an audience, the director needs the steadying and detached influence of an editor, or that director never gets any distance on the material, and falls prey to subjective familiarity with it.
Sometimes a director will personally edit because he or she was formerly an editor and cannot trust anyone else to "do it properly"; sometimes the director is imbued with the auteur theory, and edits believing this will preserve a unified artistic identity for the film.

Film editing 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 by Filmmakers.com   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
Postproduction film editing follows a series of stages similar to videotape editing, from preliminary editing that includes viewing a copy of the originally recorded images, called the work print, rushes, or dailies and selecting and ordering specific shots and scenes, called rough cutting, to final editing, called conforming.
A film editor has a great deal of freedom to experiment with a variety of different takes and shot sequences and duration's at all stages of the editing process.
Since films are often shot out of continuity, that is, all shots to be made at one location are recorded at the same time, regardless of when they occur in the script, the editor must assemble the shots into the order specified by the script.

 The Film Producer by FilmMakers Magazine   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
As a matter of fact, the producer is paid far less than the director of the film, and is not a big consideration when deciding whether a film receives the "green light" or not.
One of the main reasons for this is the increasing wages of the film editor and composer.
These days, the editor and composer are considered major creative forces that will help to shape the film into something spectacular, and they are therefore paid much more for their work than they were in the past.

 Apple - Pro/Film - Walter Murch   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
Clearly, the 8th-century poet never met 21st-century master film editor Walter Murch, whose 16-month editing effort on the movie version of “Cold Mountain” cut such a compelling throughline across half a million feet of accumulated footage that the Civil War epic is generating early but substantial Oscar buzz.
Writer/director Anthony Minghella’s adaptation of Frazier’s book covers the long, treacherous journey of Inman (Jude Law), a wounded Confederate soldier, as he tries to return from the war to his love, Ada (Nicole Kidman), on Cold Mountain, where she runs her dead father’s farm with help from a drifter, Ruby (Renee Zellweger).
To keep it interesting, Murch conducted his experiment halfway across the world in rural Romania, where the film was shot to capture the look and feel of 19th-century North Carolina.
