    The concept of video editing is introduced by Clive Thompson in his chapter The New Literacies. Where Thompson discusses moving image -video- as a literacy that has evolved “into a flexible format for communication, a way to speak one’s ideas to the world” (Thompson 98).

    this leads to depression and “our life ends up nothing” (Nouwen, Being the Beloved sermon 1 of 8).
