Approval?

Uh, what more needs to be said about this film that is holding up approval? Russell D. Jones 01:02, 25 April 2009 (UTC)

How about a total lack of Editors? There *are* two new Visual Arts Editors, but both of them are painting experts. Why *they* would be more expert on movies than I, for instance, I don't know. And I've seen about 3 movies in the last 15 years.... Hayford Peirce 01:26, 25 April 2009 (UTC)
So what sort of expertise do we need in order to become editors in the film group? ...said Russell D. Jones (talk) Please remember to add yer sig!
Well, I really don't know. But it seems absurd to me that someone who is an expert on Picasso, say, is lumped into the same category, "Visual Arts", as someone who is an expert on Orson Welles, say. What is the correlation between the two, except that both experts make use of their eyes? So why not call an expert on baseball a Visual Arts Editor also -- he too uses his eyes to watch the games. But as a rough guess, I would say that someone who has a PhD in movie-making from UCLA and teaches a course in it at, oh, say, Southern Cal., could be considered an expert in it. Or a PhD. who has published a book called "The Noir and Blanc Aspects of Orson Welles' Last Movies." I dunno who drew up the original categories for Workshops, but I think some of them oughtta be reconsidered. Hayford Peirce 03:11, 25 April 2009 (UTC)
