I wouldn't have commented on this thread at all, but for the fact that I believe @Skygazer
is mistaking technology for talent, and comparing the @SteveP
"film" to older student films she may have seen, that didn't have the benefit of digital manipulation.
Technology changes much more quickly than language. But a digital motion picture
is not, strictly speaking, a film
. We call every moving picture a film now (we used to call them movies
), and as I said in my first comment, "not that it matters."
We shouldn't even be seeing this "film." Student films are meant to be seen by students and instructors, not commented on by the public. It's only technology (again) that puts immature creative things
like this in front of too many eyes. I don't think it benefits kids like Steve here to have a bunch of old farts arguing semantics around his work.
