Abstract [en]

Many people today have no idea that film editing is more than simply putting scenes together. Previous research also reveals very limited information about the editors line of thinking, the creative decision making, intuition and how they reflect upon their own profession. The purpose of this essay is to explore the film editors meaningful role in productions of moving image. We look at editors competence and characteristics and try to break down the hidden, magical touch they contribute with in an attempt to uncover the implicit and tacit knowledge they carry. Further we investigate what the differences between branches in the industry means for the editors. Six semistructured interviews were conducted with editors in the fields of television, motion picture and commercials. The findings indicate that the key elements of editing is creating narrative clarity and dramatic emphasis. Editing is also closely intertwined with music since it has similarities both in creation process and shape. The result shows that editors have profound understanding of film theory but use it only subconsciously. Instead intuition and experience-derived knowledge replaces theory. The result was applied on theories of intuition and experience after an empirical analysis in the hope of explaining what is demanded by the editor and how they develop their competence. Our study also highlight the need for more research in the field of editing.
