Thanks for the comments. Some years ago in a college class on Broadcasting the professor showed a film about Marshall McLuhan ("The Medium is the Message"). Most of the film was McLuhan sitting on a stool with a generally dark background, but some kind of colored lights. (This was 25 years ago, so please excuse my fading memory.)
I wasn’t really interested in what McLuhan was saying, but listening to him was even more difficult when I became aware of the movement of the little colored lights in the background. McLuhan looked as if he was sitting still, but the camera was moving left to right. To me that was distracting, and where I was half-listening before I was then totally distracted.I now wish that had been a class on camera movement and then we could have learned what that move was all about.
Are there anymore opinions? I am still interested in learning.
