Editing pulls the various scenes in a sequence and gives the story a flow. The student of Editing Course learns how to influence the story through pace, order, quantum of information, and feelings. The questions that a student of Editing Course learns to ask are – WHAT should the pace of THIS story be?; What should be the order of the narrative and WHY?; HOW much of information should the audience get at various points of time and What and How does the audience feel about the characters in the narrative. The art and craft of Editing is linked to the ability of the student to seek answers to these questions. The answers help them in pulling together a logical, coherent and comprehensible narrative.
