• Because just about every single shot in a movie has multiple takes -- the editors have to watch every single one of them, decide which is the best for telling the kind of story they want to tell, string them all together, watch the entire scene, trim a bit here, rearrange the order there, and so on. It's like having to watch the same movie over and over 100 times before you're through. And then if you have a director like George Lucas, who'll use computer technology to combine Actor #1's performance in Take 3 with Actor #2's performance in Take 7 to create a "Super-Take" (as he puts it), it gets VERY time consuming.
  • All of the above plus time to add multiple layers of sound and computer effects. Imagine a big trunk filled with photos, all in envelopes with their identification on them, and arrange them all to tell a story...with music. (P.s. You will probably have to choose which particular photo or similar photos to leave in and which to leave out so no-one will walk out of your "Slide show") Hope this helps. :0)
  • editing increases or decreases the pace and tone of a movie-a director could make 6 takes of one scene the editor might use different parts of each to enhance the directors initial view-he might for instance insert a number of closeups to increase audiance emotion using long shots to slow down the tempo ready to be increased it after for greater effect-editing also cuts the movie to its essential parts without this movies would be as long as this answer
  • It just takes a lot of time to perfect. There's a lot of stuff to work on. There's the actual editing of the film, color correction, audio work, special effects, ect...
