I would imagine the light output for those would be really low compared to these floods. You could set up some lights, flag them off and then have someone wave strips of duvetyne that have been nailed to a small board in front of the lights.
I have to wonder, when it comes to subtle recurring motifs in a film like the roses here, how much of an effect it has on an audience's subconscious interpretation and their conscious entertainment satisfaction. I'm not suggesting things like this don't have an effect, I just honestly don't know. I've certainly never felt anything about a film that I could attribute to things like this, and I probably rarely ever really notice them.
There's a "does a bear shit in the woods" joke here somewhere, but I'm too tired to think of one. I'm relying on you all to step in and fill the void.
But... you had time to watch it AND post about it. You don't fast-forward through the slow parts of movies, do you? ; )
Funny thing (funny strange, not funny humorous), I wrote directly to NFS about their ripoff of your image and I never received a reply. I'm really starting to lose respect for NFS. However, I now PROMISE I'm going to violate their copyrights now and then.
Well golly, if it's on the Internet it MUST be free, right? ; )
I think I'm going to start compiling all NFS articles into a book, with me as the author. How do you think they'd like that?
