"Aesthetics are translated into devices, form into technique ... Hence, close-ups become 75mm lenses, sumptuous images become filters and tungsten lights, the sound of footsteps becomes a cardioid microphone, locations become budgets, et al. ... What is important is not always that the image is an image, but that it is an accumulation of tricks and processes that allows it to become an image."
--Ricky D'Ambrose, "Notes on Film School"

His use of the Sontag quotes would make a good satirical piece called "Notes on Film Studies."
