    so this is a layered question- but i would strongly appreciate help if anyone knows how to work with imovie.

    so I'm trying to string clips together for a montage of horror movies and I wanna know how to trim out the gory scenes in the clips and play background music. i just want a standard run of the mill montage. It's for a study on horror films that have undergone change since the 70's and the effect its had critically and financially. And its and opening sequence.

    in the new project window you see the film as a long strip, when you click on any part of it a yellow rectangle should appear, you can extend it's boundaries as you desire and then just press delete, as for music right click and click detach audio, a bar running under the movie with the audio should appear, you can edit as you desire and to add music click the music and sound effects button (looks like a musical note) and drag from your library the sounds you want and drop them at the point of the video you want it to be at
