    The intention of my paper, The Attentional Theory of Cinematic Continuity (AToCC; this volume) was to bring together disparate lines of research on cinematic continuity and make an intentionally provocative first stab at theorising a cognitive foundation for the continuity editing conventions that pervade film. If our understanding of film cognition is to progress, clear hypotheses need to be proposed that can be empirically tested and theoretically challenged. To this end, the high quality and variety of the six responses that constitute the rest of this volume are hugely encouraging. My only regret is that I will not be able to deal with each of their insightful comments in the space permitted.
