AbstractThe honors thesis project is the final editing of one act of the filmed production of The Taming of the Shrew, performed by the Arizona Reparatory Theater. The honors thesis is a project to apply and analyze the editing techniques learned during research. The thesis project explores the intersections of film narrative, both linear and non-linear, and editing as they work together to shape film language. The project consists of observing rehearsals of the production so as to establish a shot list to shoot during later dress rehearsals performances. After filming the performances, the rest of the semester was spent editing the footage together in two different approaches that apply the techniques learned during the research semester of Fall 2009. These techniques are silent film editing style and traditional continuity editing style.
