Moviemaking is a lot like Magic. By that, I mean sleight-of-hand is a very valuable storytelling tool.
So...you come to a sight that's about *learning filmmaking* and someone takes the time to analyze a scene from a Classic movie, by a Genius Director and you call it...overanalyzing.
That says more about you. You, in particular, aren't interested in in-depth analysis. So...why are you here?
If you think Scott's work has surface value only, that he doesn't control every single frame like a Master, you're selling yourself very short.
Time to sell my ripple. Oh man, I only just bought it. I don't care, it's going on Kijiji. It's ok, but so cheapo plasticy and only a couple of barely useful buttons.

This is exactly why I pushed for a switch back to Avid in our production company, after years of suffering through Final Cut Pro workflows. Avid may be clunky at times, but it respects metadata. I have yet to experience a problem (unrelated to some kind of user-error) conforming a show to hi-res in Media Composer 7 and 8. And no need for 3rd party solutions to make it work.
Curious if you've ever done an Avid conform from proxies to full-resolution for colouring?
