||In this paper, I will speak about how I supplemented film editing techniques, such as the "Rule of Six" and montage, among others, to the choreographic process for the development of my dance piece "I am a work of fiction." This paper will tell the story of my process in constructing an original and imaginative dance piece using my experience in the fields of film and dance to bring this piece into existence. I also will extend my view of montage and editing in other artistic genres such as illustration in the graphic novel and other forms of animation. I will also look at the work of other modern choreographers with whom I feel kinship in relation to collage choreographic techniques, such as Pina Bausch. I will speak to my process of ‘editing' in choreography, bringing to light the benefits of following Walter Murch's "Rule of Six." Along the way, I will analyze how other artists and choreographers have used similar techniques to spin their yarns and weave their worlds, and how these works of art have possibly influenced my process and preferences, thus attuning my artistic intuition. I will argue for the combination and influence of film editing and the montage to the choreographic creative process.
