Audience Interpretation on Filmmaking and Storytelling

Just the Cut / Nate Weber

I love talking with people about their view on shows and movies. Everyone interprets things differently and finds different elements that stand out to them. It’s amazing how different 2 people can view the same thing. It’s also amazing how much you can control perspective through style, editing and tone.

Flickr just announced 1 TB of storage for all users. Absolutely bonkers, I’m moving my photos back over there soon and keeping most of them private. The average person never has to back-up their photo collection again, granted, I’d still keep a local copy, going online for your own photos is silly, but I trust Yahoo (Flickr’s owner) enough that they won’t lose it. While that is crazy awesome, I am disappointed that they...Read More
