MODERNIZATION History of Film Editing “filmstrip is a length of film containing still photographs arranged in sequence projection”. 1872 (Webster's Dictionary, 1972) Edwin Porter the first person who did this was Edwin Porter’s cameraman, where he decided to make his own way through film by splicing together the enormous number of film shots which his boss rejected. Hire EDITORS “Editor’s first job is to sort out the right scenes and the best takes and assemble them in script order. He then fine cuts the assembly, cutting from scene to scene at the most advantageous points" (Burder, 1999) Cutting Rooms Moviola a projector like machine to view the motion picture while editing the film strips. EDITING SOFTWARES The notion of editing film on video originated when films were transferred to video for television viewing. Then filmmakers used video to edit their work more quickly and less expensively than they could on film. The task of splicing together video clips was then taken over by computers using advanced programs that could then also perform various special effects functions. Holsinger and Winokur (2001) Avid Editing a full-featured editing, graphics creation and compositing solution, and is the absolute best conforming tool to create and deliver high-end content (“Avid”, n.d.) Adobe After Effects “provides a comprehensive set of 2D and 3D tools for composting and effects that film professionals need” Final Cut Pro a non-destructive editor of wide variety of video formats. You can easily mix video files of varying formats and resolutions without having to spend time recoding the files. Examples of Editing Softwares Importance of Film Editing “Good editing can make bad production look good and bad editing can turn a good production into bad.” (Tudu, 2009) "Editing is arguably the most important element of film. It is in the editing, the art of arranging pictures and dialog and sounds, that a finished film product is able to communicate a story first envisioned by its writer, and subsequently by a director to its intended audience." (Fulford, 2008) The shoot or the taping of scenes is the backbone of a film but the editing is the icing on the cake. It highlights the best scene, angles, backgrounds, sounds and is the process before we can officially call a work in progress a film. Importance to Media The importance of editing to media is the finished product it will result into. It should be accurate and brief and that the facts should be reliable to the majority of the audience. Too much effects or drama on the film would make it less trustworthy because it would seem the editors or creators are not professionals or may not be educated enough in the field. It is the appearance that matters most to people because it what captures them first before they even get to absorb the substance or idea of the film. Importance to Economic Society Great films result to millions of spectators and to great influxes of income. These big hits are in to make sequels or prequels, tie-in video games and selling them to pay-TV. (Davidson, 2012.) Principles of Editing Editing A Picture Keeping the background or set constant extent of change in image size and angle preserving a sense of direction Preserving a clear continuity Matching tone
sound flow
timing, pace and rhythm Editing A Sound The music is also important in a film. It increases the emotion and sense in the story.

According to Reisz (2010), the analysis of the sound-track is the means of controlling pace. The tempo and urgency of the commentator's delivery are often working against the natural flow of the images. In our comments on sequences from story-films the power of the sound-track to slow-down or accelerate the pace of the sequence has often been noticed. 3 Terrifying Sounds: The emotion of being effectively dragged towards the film is by the sound-track it produces in every scene. slow tempo music: Process of Film Editing Selection Timing
Cut, Trim, Crop Transitions and Visual Effects “you must make some preliminary choices about which shots you plan to use in your final project before you begin to capture your material” (Compesi & Sherriffs, 2007) Timing is the part of making sure of the position and period before trimming or cutting a certain clip. Cut in film editing means the separation of two pieces of action as a "transition"(Golda, n.d.)

Trim means the lengthening or shortening a certain clip in own’s sequence (Kauffmann, 2000).

Cropping refers to the removal of the outer parts of an image to improve framing, accentuate subject matter or change aspect ratio (Wikipedia, 2008). Transition is an effect used to change from one clip in an edited sequence to the next. Visual effects, on the other hand, are techniques by which imagery is created and manipulated outside the context of a shoot. Conclusion The researchers learned that film editing was a complicated process and it needs endurance in able for the people to create notable films. The researchers also found out the development of editing from the past to the present. They have also learned the importance of knowing how to edit by the help of different techniques, technology provided.

This paper’s purpose is for the readers to have knowledge about Film Editing on how it all started and how it developed. We want them to know, the importance of it for everyone and how it can affect the different parts of people’s lives.

The researchers also in part this paper with the course, Communication and Media Studies, which is a program wherein it tackles all about Media and other forms of Art like creating films. It is important for the people who take this program to learn film editing for it expands the knowledge in creating films and it helps a film have a sense of continuity and creativity. Lastly, editing was really an important part in the course, for it helps organize good stories coming from creative minds.
