    No... What was meant was that this section was suitable to display either art and/or entertainment, not that the two were in fact the same thing.

    Notice it said Art & Entertainment, and not Art = Entertainment.

    & -------- and

    = ------- is/equals

    There are various similarities between art and entertainment.
    Besides, there is a gray area between the two that is common, plus various misinterpretations on what art is and what entertainment is.

    I've never seen why movies and video games should be considered anything other than art. The people who make them are considered artists.

    We are all artists in some ways. Entertainers in others.

    Not every movie maker is an artist.

    Movie is a photograph. A photograph is about light and shadow.

    To master the art is to master the essence of the art of the movie: the interplay of light and shadow.

    Rules

    1. Light is used to illuminate the object. To illuminate the object the light must not blind the object with light.

    2. Light is meaningless without a contrast shadow.

    3. Too much light is less light.

    4. Only when a stronger light is behind the object, light can be directed to illuminate the object. Otherwise light must not face directly the object.

    5. Shut down the neon lamps.

    6. The camera has wheels. Movie is not a still picture.

    7. When you shoot be aware of the distance between the camera and the object. A flower is not a mountain.

    Why does the blind man profess to see?
    Art is to see. To see is to know. To know is to do.

    Art is a skill. Entertainment is a kill.

    In some ways we are all blind yes. Red is green for the colour blind.

    It's kind of disingenuous to suggest they have nothing to do with each other. The best art is entertaining and the best entertainment is artful.

    Where do we find a spectacle like that? Have you seen Ingmar Bergman movies? Antonioni? Godard? Fellini? Pasolini? Visconti? Kubrick? Hitchcock?

    When you write for the screen do you see how the camera moves?

    The dialogue must follow the camera. The camera must not follow the dialogue.

    Why do the craftsmen, the artists know this? Why the entertainers do not?

    Cinema is not theatre.
