ABSTRACT
The article discusses the factors in editing a 16MM film used in the cinematography of a documentary film. Editing is one of the three major operations in film-making. The first factor is continuity of action and background. The second is the proper arrangement of long scenes, mid scenes and close scenes since this will help in determining the length of any scene. The last one is deciding the time when a shot should be held onscreen and it is a sound rule that it should not stay for too long.
