Merlin - Editing
Fast cuts are used throughout the clip especially at the beginning during the fight scene, this keeps the pace up and emphasizes the fast action fighting on screen. Editing is used to create 'magic' on screen, the scene in which the young boy uses magic to clean items, the items appear to hover in the air as cloths are polishing them. Also later in the clip, editing is used to show an image of a snake coming to life which frightens the young boy. Elliptical editing is used to speed up the process of the young boy helping his master by preparing him and his armour for battle.
