[Chip Johns] "So I feel that many times the greatest accomplishments in society are usually by individuals who do not have as much natural ability, they know it and they work 100 times harder than the natural..."

I don't think this is totally true in this case. First, I really don't call it a natural ability, it is developed over time, but there is no real way to teach it, you just learn how to feel it as you go. Also as to working harder if you don't have natural ability again is not totally true, many just let it happen, where if you got it you work harder to make it that perfect feel you know it can have. Just because you have that feel doesn't mean every scene is going to fall into place you ahve to try scenes to feel which works best.

I remember a movie in the mid 60's, not sure of the title but similar to Naked City. The opening credits were pl;ayed over a scene of a car driving through New York shot from the back seat. As credits end the car stops, people start getting out as does the camera and everyone walks up 2 flights of stairs camera following. This ended up as about a 2 and a half minute shot. one shot and it felt so dang good. I was always amazed at how it felt to not have a cut in such a long shot.
