You have your movie all in one piece. Now, in the beginning, you gave whoever was speaking in the film a countdown. You would of course want to get rid of you saying 3, 2, 1 in the beginning, right? So what you do is make the splice right after you count, but still before the person has said anything. Now, you will have two clips in your storyboard/storyline. Delete the one that has your countdown. You can now move the good part of the movie to the left using "Drag and Drop", and whala! Look at your movie now! You just cut out the countdown, and the movie starts right where you wanted! You can also do this in the middle of the film, just make sure to make a "splice" on both ends of the part you want to cut, this way you have three slides, and you can delete the slide in the middle, which is the part you want gone.
It's a little hard to explain, but I hope it helped you. Let me know if you need any more help!

Here's a tip for finding that one spot on the film... Trust me, I used to do a lot of this, I know exactly what you're having trouble with... Have a look below...
TIP: When you have your storyboard view (default view) in front of you, you see boxes, right? It's almost impossible to always splice in the right place by relying on the pause button to stop in the right place. Sometimes I'd have to do it about five times to make it work... Here's how to fix that...
(1) Click on the Show Timeline button located just above the storyboard boxes.
(2) You now have an arrow of a sort which will move as the movie plays. This shows you exactly where you are.
(3) See where it has the seconds listed? If you click on that board, the arrow will move, pointing exactly where you need to be. Of course, if you have a lot of video or a small screen, then that doesn't seem very effective, does it? We'll soon fix that...
(4) Look above the Timeline, and click on the magnifying glass which has the plus (+) sign inside. Your view of the clip just got bigger. Guess what, this just made it a hundred times easier to find your splicing point! If you pass that point with the pause button, just drag that arrow a little, and there you go! Perfecto!
