Planning out the shots of a film is like perceiving the multiverse. The camera could go anywhere. There's a universe where this shot takes place 3 feet to the left and that difference moves a hundred more people in a different way. In another universe, the shot is instead four different shots and changes a million people's lives and how they see the world. Or maybe in that universe no one sees the movie at all.
And don't get me started on editing.
Hi there, grad students!
You cannot crack my logic.
After years of saying I wanted to do a podcast but never getting around to it, all it took was my son’s enthusiasm to make it happen. He and I started a new podcast: It Sounded Better In My Head. It’s about... well, it’s sort of about games. But I think it’s actually about playing.
The kid’s really good, and I think it’s a lot of fun to listen to. I wonder how long we’ll stick it out? (He’s already talking about trying to get sponsors...)

Here's what unreared kids do at zoos.
Educated in a landscape of dead-eyed rubrics, looking for the target they must hit to get the grade.
