    Rand,
    The search for and acquisition of knowledge and skills is all consuming. A day without valuable learning is, to me, a failing. Such pursuit is a bit unusual in society today wherein leisure tends to absorb discretionary time but I am comfortable with my choice. Your contributions help feed the fire.

    I'm curious. How did you source the clips in these montage?

    BTW: At minimum this was interesting. Maybe even a "fun" demonstration. Nice work.

    Just like copying lighting setups from other DPs. I wonder sometimes if publishing lighting setups should be verboten. Describing lighting problems is great, but if you publish the setups, others will just copy them without understanding them. That isn't being helpful, IMO. Just thinking aloud.
    Good production values may not be noticed. Bad production values will be.

    Most good chefs know that the recipe is only part of the story.

    The execution, the seasoning in that particular situation or even choosing which recipe to go to. All of those choices have just as much impact on the end result.

    Karim and John,


    It just seems like some younger cinematographers these days believe that they can reduce every look of every film into a few variables, what camera did they use, What lenses did they use, what lighting did they use and what Lut did they use and is it available for sale. It's like , to use your recipe analogy John, if you add A+B+C+D=(The Identical look and feel of the Film you want to duplicate). No additional hard work, Skill /Talent or the additional skills of numerous other people are required.
