    As I sink deeper into theater I question two dimensional art. As I work with actors and incredible sets I see that film is pointless in capturing moments that are truly three dimensional. As photographers do we consider that live is a thousand times more brilliant then film. Is that not the reason why landscapes and sunsets fail? I think that film can capture a moment and make it more dramatic through close ups etc.

    So from that perspective painting is a waste of time too?
    Photography, like all Art forms, is just another way of looking at things.
    I could make the argument that Photography is much better than Theatre because Photography deals with real life whilst Theatre is just actors pretending ;)

    and I could argue that painting/drawing is better than photography. Some would say that part of what makes something art is the process which goes into its creation, and I would say there's more satisfaction from the artist when he finishes a wonderful drawing or painting, than when a shot turns out well.


    That being said, I like photography a lot better than drawing :p

    ...and I could argue that it's more rewarding to cook a good meal.

    Oh, and if you make something with lots of beans you can "enjoy" the meal and its... repercussions... for a long time after it's finished. :p

    No... that's just noise. :lol:

    OK... I'm kidding.

    Or did you mean the 'Art of Noise' that was Trevor Horns little band of studio engineers?

    'Art of Noise' were (and are, because they are still going) actually musicians, Trevor Horn played bass if I remember correctly. I think he formed the band after leaving Bruce Woolley and the Camera Club... et voila! Back on topic :mrgreen:

    They may well be line dancers too - but it's their engineering and production skills that made them key on all the Art of Noise material I've heard. Just as Gorge Martin is better known as a producer than a pianist. ;)

    Anne Dudley used to arrange the music for Frankie Goes To Holliwood (produced, I believe, by Trevor Horn) before co-founding the Art of Noise. Later she won an Oscar for her soundtrack to The Full Monty.
    Trivia rules :lol:
