Question by OneMoreQuestionPlease: What is the correct film & editing term for combining various movie clips together to making a statement?
If any film & editing students can help, there is a scene in Die Hard 4 (LFODH) where a bunch of presidential movie clips are combined together to make a cohesive statement. Each movie clip had the president saying random 1 to 5 words, and when combined with the other movie clips, it made a statement.
Is this the same as photo montage? If any film student/editor can help give me the correct term, that would be great!

A montage. Yeah, it’s the same idea as a photo montage. Just like a photo montage, a film montage can be made to make a statement or just to look pretty.
