The word audience represents all those attending to some event, with whatever senses, as a collective, a crowd, with the tendency to have collective feelings: the audience. The audience in film is entirely extradiegetic and passive: it is outside what is happening on the screen and cannot in any way influence it.

In film making, rhythm is usually taken to mean the use of montage to create a ‘cutting rhythm’ in a sequence of shots. The term can also be applied to the rhythm of movement within a shot, and how this relates to the cutting rhythm. Stan Brakhage was a master of this.
It is sometimes also used in relation to the macro structure of a film, but ‘pace’ is more often used in this context.edited 25 September, 2016 by Mr. Administrator
