Editors are important professionals in the movies and film making industry. The camera operators are obligated to operate the cameras manually, but work with the directors, of photography, in the film making process (DeKoven, 2005, p. 21). The editor is supposed to take shots from various scenes in the scenes from different angles as well as different perspectives and arrange them to tell the story. The integrity of the scenes in a shooting is dependent of the editors’ ability to capture the scene with much appeal as possible to the audience that the shoots are designed to meet (Ray and Robinson, 2005, p. 20). The operator has the mandate of choosing the right order to ensure a smooth and transitional storyline.
The operators’ obligation of manually create a sequence of shots which involves a number of factors. The editor is supposed to integrate what the eye is supposed to capture within a given screening, choreography of the shots and integrating the knowledge of framing shots in the scenes to enable the editing department come up with a clean and concise storyboard that focuses on the richness of the story or script. The editor covers a transitional gap that is between the actors and the directors (Weston, 1999, p. 17). The necessity of the professional lies in the ability to choose the right composition of the shootings such as the angles, lighting, and viewpoint, access to detail and appearance to the audience to integrate in a particular set.
The editors integrate various principles of telling a dramatic story while including the fundamentals of film editing (Lumet, 1995, p. 34). The purpose of the editing in making the film is ensuring that every detail intended in the filmmaking is caught on camera and communicated to the audience as it was intended by the director. The editors represent a window through which the audience benefits from the film industry.
