If you have one long continuous shot then it doesn't apply. I'm not sure whether the opening scene of Orson Welles' "A Touch Of Evil" breaks the rule but it could have done. Opening credits to "Roseanne" clearly does.
How apt is Number 6. Watching Patrick McGoohan in "The Prisoner" last night, his character Number 6 escapes the Village (for a while) in "Many Happy Returns". He gets back to London and meets people who he knows very well, yet because of the premise of the show, they are unable to use his name.

As I'm a bit light on the graphics card front, more so than any of the other components, I have been looking around. At the budget end at the moment, the NVidia GTX 1050 Ti and the AMD RX470 are going toe to toe. The AMD is the more powerful card but the Nvidia just has the edge on price and uses much less power. They are pretty much the bottom end for 4K video work but I would happily accept the gift of either.
Notoriously, by the time you read this, the situation may well have changed completely, yet again.
I agree with Wyatt. Old Olympus OM lenses are great. I know of several people who professionally use Canon FD on Sony e-mount. FD is only usually suitable for use on mirrorless cameras due to its shallow flange depth. Old Soviet lenses may not be the sharpest but have a very pleasing look (and price tag).
I think that you should look to Google and YouTube for help. There seem to be so many different aspects to this, from framing of shots, to colour grading, to camera techniques and to equipment.
You may even need to think long and hard to yourself as to what YOU mean by cinematic.
I have been away for many many months due to a problem with my account being unable to post so I have missed all this. (It seems fixed now).
I agree with Glenn. I hate those damn Captcha systems but if the only alternative is that NFS goes to the dogs then it will be a bitter pill that we have to take.
I also agree with Luke's comments about the voting system. He shouldn't be hassled for trying to be helpful and God help anyone who might post an opinion that is controversial. How much more effective and productive is to give even a few sentences of counterargument rather than a downvote.
