Chapter 2. Movie-Making Basics > Filmmaking and Editing Terminology

Filmmaking and Editing Terminology

You can make a movie without knowing one word of filmmaking and editing terminology. However, if you’re going to be using iMovie a lot, it helps to know at least the basic terms that filmmakers and editors use. These are terms we’ll use throughout the book, and understanding what they mean will help you create better movies in the long run.
