His theory of editing has five components: metric montage, rhythmic montage, tonal montage, overtonal montage, and intellectual montage. The clearest exposition of his theory has been presented by Andrew Tudor in his book . Montage is a technique in film editing in which a series of short shots are edited into a sequence to condense space, time, and term has been used in various contexts. It was introduced to cinema primarily by Sergei Eisenstein.
