Editing dialectics

Human ability in wielding and extracting meaning from consecutive shots, sequence and ultimately the whole film

  • Sound is usually continuous in order to integrate seamlessly the different shots, although that usually does not alter too much our ability to extract meaning from separate elements

Complementary effect: Narrative schema
