How to Edit for Better Pacing and Storytelling

So, I just posted a new video to my YouTube channel, Reel Busy Editing, and what I show in it is how I re-edited The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions into a single film by cutting all the bloat present in both films. There was so much getting in the way of the story being told in both movies, that I was able to cut the combined 4 hours and 27 minutes into a cinema-friendly 2 hours and 44 minutes. If you want to see some of the major changes I made to the film to give it better pacing and place the story at the center of the movie, rather than a bunch of needless action and philosophical scenes, then check out Part 1 of the planned 3-part series below.
