FD's editors are passionate filmmakers and place paramount importance to facilitating and placing cinematic meaningful compositions in meaningful manners. Motion picture editing involves a technical post-production process of digital film. FDs' film editors works with raw footage, selecting compositions, and combining them into meaningful sequences that production a finished motion picture. Film editing is constantly evolving skill and 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.
Fundamentally, editing is the art, technique, and practice of assembling shots into a coherent sequence. This task is not simply to mechanically put pieces of a film together, cut off film slates, or edit dialogue scenes. With careful supervision the editor must creatively work with the layers of images, story, dialogue, music, pacing, as well as the actors' performances to effectively "re-imagine" and even rewrite the film to craft a cohesive whole. Generally speaking, editors usually play a crucial role in the making of a film or video.
With the advent of digital editing, film editors and their assistants have become responsible for many areas of filmmaking that used to be the responsibility of others. Modern day NLEs have increasingly put these responsibilities on the picture editor.
