"The editor is an invisible artist who works on visible art. Compared with the director and cinematographer, whose designed shots and technical choices match the intended tone or mood of the film, the editor's work goes unnoticed when done well. However, the truth is, what the audience sees on the screen, including the story, performance, and cinematography, is what the editor wants them to see, but not what the original story, performance, or footage is like. Walter Murch, one of the greatest editors, has revealed the sovereignty of the editor through his works and theory. This thesis paper will focus on how the editor's work saves the film when the footage is deficient by following Walter Murch's theory, and how these strategies were used in postproduction for the thesis film, 'Writing Class.'" --Abstract
