Cinematography: Mark Lee Ping Bin, Kwan Pun Leung, Christopher Doyle
Have you ever stopped to look at the film itself? I mean actually STOP. and look at it. Acknowledge it. Not its narrative, characters, or realism. The cinematography can be absolutely beautiful and breathtaking with it’s enhanced colours, deep compositions, shifting focus and subtle reminders. Cinematography does not shout, it whispers. And those that listen will discover a hidden beauty that flashes every 24 fames per second.
“We must define entertainment as a commercial commodity, produced and consumed as part of a capitalist industrial system. In return for the price of admission to an entertainment, we expect to witness some kind of performance produced by people who make their living performing for paying audiences.”(Maltby, 56)

What can I say, I enjoy paying George Clooney and Béyonce to do their job! With films, you don’t receive a commodity or physical good, instead you receive a service, an experience, a set amount of time “entertained”. Sans aucun doubt, j’adore le département du cinéma et l’audiovisuel et la philosophie que nous apprenons sur l’industrie du divertissement.
French Alps, Paul Smith, and Two Cameras = the behind the scenes.

I have a confession…. I like wifi as much as I like breathing… But this poster makes a good point in a witty tone of voice. It might be time to re-think my priorities… nothing a jog in the Jardin du Luxembourg can’t solve! (amongst the trees and clean air)
