Synchronicity! Jimmy Johnson was talking about cinematographic effects just yesterday [arloandjanis.com] - only in an older medium.
Plug: Johnson's a truly great human being and his relaunched blog is a good read. Go see him. He's the guy that turned me onto webcomics in the first place. (And I'm still hoping he'll plug Sheldon some day). And just to make matters betters, Arlo & Janis [comics.com] is actually funny. I guess that's why so few papers run it.
