thoughts

The difference between photography and cinematography...

In photography you might miss a moment forever. Errors can be beautiful.

In cinematography, you never miss a moment, yet the moment can become mundane, or ill-illustrated.

Photography camera is like a typewriter. You type, then you hand out that sheet of words.

Cinematography is... a cog in a long process. Can one shot be an entirety? (Maybe... like a loop. But unlikely.)
