Part 2: Editing > iMovie Overview

Chapter 6. iMovie Overview

Being a fan of the moviemaking process, I enjoy reading “behind the scenes” articles about how films are produced. In nearly all cases, the reporter interviews cast and crew at the movie set during shooting (and invariably makes it sound more exciting than it usually is). But filming is only one part of the production.

Rarely reported on is the editing stage, when the editor and director spend long hours in a dark editing room—sometimes for many months—shaping hours of raw footage into what we eventually see in a theater. They grab the best takes from each day’s shooting, assemble them according to the storyline, and then add transitions, audio, special effects, and whatever else is required for that particular flick.
