Sorry I'm in the middle of a move so I'm not sure what I said, but
it's really two different threads.... one film, video, transmission,
in the other I asserted that what I think is best derived from the
"movie", it's "qualities" so to speak is what emerges from it's
materials: how these materials are shaped.... and what shapes them
(their properties) ... I should probably just dig out Dorsky's
Devotional Cinema and quote from it.... it didn't seem to be *that*
radical an assertion - especially here - which was why I was
surprised to have to be defending it..
Can't find it right now; anyway a major thunderstorm is starting.....
I always thought they are a kind of cinema.... much later I read
Andrew Noren saying that in one of the Scott McDonald books...
Since they're *electrical* storms are they really a kind of
video ? ;-)
