Thanks for saving me the time to figure out that much. Dual dialogue is quite an important feature indeed. I'm sure others are missing too; and they'll probably fix all that as soon as they realise there's demand for it.
Overall, I don't like Amazon as a company so I'll stick to Celtx hahaha
And again, wrongly reversing the causality of the equation: we see colors as emotions in a certain way because WE have been associating them in that way, ourselves, so far; not the other way around.
Maybe the reason why we associate blue with horror is because we've been indoctrinated to do so - every horror film follows the same convention, and it's been so for decades. So of course, blue equates a scare.
I bet you blue could equally well be associated with serenity: water is calming; water is blue. Or depth: the ocean is blue; the ocean is profoundly deep. Or vastness: the sky is blue; the sky is vast.
The point being that we're mistaking our self-indoctrination for natural color-mood associations. We bury ourselves in a pit of pre-conceived half-baked pseudo-scientific beliefs - the kind of beliefs that have no place in the world of art, or even in the world of science.
We trick our brains into making these associations, and then after a few decades we start to analyse these associations "scientifically", completely omitting the fact that we might have just INVENTED them ourselves in the first place - which makes them conventions, more than natural emotional responses.
If you show red to someone who's never seen blood up close before, red might turn out to be appealing or appeasing.
Of course, color has an effect. Deeply so. But to say that these effects are universal, or natural, is a bit of a stretch. The current pattern can easily be reversed, and if horror filmmakers start using green or red or pink as a standard color base for their work, in 35 years, pink will be scary.
I second that.
The best one is the ungraded one; all the others are either unnatural, just plain ugly or both.
I don't see the point in using DaVinci if you're going to end up burning your footage with crappy filters.
There you go. Finally a reasonable view we can all learn from.
Things are rarely clear-cut; and in this case we don't have that much information. Not enough to blame the director, not enough to blame the crew either.
I'd be naturally inclined to defend a high-integrity director, but that's the cynical side of me expressing itself; maybe wrongfully.
A crew member just got killed by a train, right. And one person dies of a car accident every 12 seconds in America. What's your point?
I do think that a majority of people have it easy and their tolerance for hardship is very low. So of course, from their united perspective, it's the director's fault.
It's easier to blame individuals than it is to blame human weakness.
