You must be using a lot of transitions. A transition borrows frames from the clip before and after.
See this from iMovie Help. "To set how much transitions overlap with other clips"
Also, in iMovie Preferences, you can set Display Time as hh:mm:ss:frames. If this is not checked, you get hh:mm:ss:tenths of seconds. Editing by frames gives you more precision, because there are about 3 frames in 1/10 of a second.
So if you are editing by frames 20 is 20 frames. 40 is 40 frames which is the same as 1 second and 10 frames. If you are editing by tenths, .3 is about 9 frames

Gotcha. I need to work a clip at a time instead of inputting all at once and then trying to edit. I figured how to increase project area size by simply clicking the swirling arrows icon. Grey bar in centre can be dragged to enlarge even further. Thanks for the help.
