I'd also suggest that if the state of the expected raw materials of a film today, always mimicked the state of the raw materials that were expected when the films being discussed were being assembled, I'd have a bit more attraction for the (...lest you miss that unique trigger moment of creativity) idea.

I can easily see the potential magic it can hold.

But there's also the reality of today's shooting style.

Hanging strips of celluloid above the Steenbeck is charming when the edit bay is 10x10 or even 20x20. Not sure it's as charming when you need a room 1000' x 1000' square - just to hold all the clips.

And that's increasingly the rule now. More cameras, more coverage, more options. Logrhytemically more, sometimes.

So do you restrict coverage to allow the editor to bathe in the raw materials deeper and longer? Or do you seek systems that impose a bit more order onto the increasing chaos?

If you "pre-winnow" successfully, does that return more time to steep your brain in what's left?

Big questions. No simple answers.
