I don't want to pass for the scriptwriter troll but does this article seem to mistake conflict and obstacle ? conflict isn't supposed to be between either inner struggle or fight against another will or status quo ? Something generated by a person a society or anything related to decision making ? These example show story beats and bumps which are great to enhance a scene... But what do I know ? I'm probably a foreigner lost in translation.
We don't have so many expressions in French to describe editing techniques even if we use J and L cut without naming them. we call it "enjambement" ( which literally means "spanning" ) It more poetic but less precise ;)
Good for you mate ! For me I HATE to write on paper. I Lose them, can't read myself properly, and for the most part I can't bring them with me ( because I work everywhere ). I'm so happy with software like Scrivener ( don't work for them ) where I can put virtual post it, annotate and add up Webpages as my search material. It's not because you put a statement with nice motion design that it's necessarely true for everybody. ;)
It reminds me of this guy who told me that his old Jaguar is far better than the new cars. Yes it's a beautiful piece, but it has a lot of mechanical issues, no security features, it has a tendency to go off road if you don't master it so well. Bottom line, it's just plain "expensive" nostalgia. Will it be the future of automobile ? Certainly not. Does it have style ? Hell yeah ! Do I want one for Christmas to replace my electric car ? No way.
I'm sorry to tell you that marketwise wether you want it or not, 4K is the only word distributors have in their mouth when talking to them. If your film is aimed to be future proof, then 4K is the only way to go if you want to be sold. It's not a matter of technical issues but selling point. Not having a famous cast in a small budget film is already a bullet in your foot these days, adding a 2K resolution may just turn off your buyers...
