Subjective time = POV: In explaining his theory of relativity, Albert Einstein is often quoted as saying that although sitting next to a pretty girl for an hour feels like a minute, placing one's hand on a hot stove for a minute feels like an hour. This is intended to introduce the listener to the concept of the interval between two events being perceived differently by different observers.
Dramatic time = identification with action
Event Duration Change Rate Sense of time CausalityTheatre of cruelty
"Cuts" in dreams? Virtual Theatre expirience! 3D and I am in the center of action.
"Lev Kuleshov was among the very first to theorize about the relatively young medium of the cinema in the 1920s. For him, the unique essence of the cinema — that which could be duplicated in no other medium — is editing. He argues that editing a film is like constructing a building. Brick-by-brick (shot-by-shot) the building (film) is erected. His often-cited Kuleshov Experiment established that montage can lead the viewer to reach certain conclusions about the action in a film. Montage works because viewers infer meaning based on context." * i.e. logic of association *
Time refers to the conceptual dimension (or medium) wherin change occurs, either as an empirical observation, or as conceptualized through abstracted analysis; described in physics as the aspect of relative directionality within a space-time continuum. Time became the fourth dimension known to man when Einstein proved this. [wikipedia]
T -- The Oxford English Dictionary defines it as "the indefinite continued progress of existence and events in the past, present, and future, regarded as a whole".
Another standard dictionary definition is "a nonspatial linear continuum wherein events occur in an apparently irreversible order."
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Movie_montage: Film editing, also called montage, is the connecting of one or more shots together in a sequence.
Drama is what takes place in minds and hearts of your audience...
Spectator is "drama machine"! He puts everything together, he is the ACTION!
Aristotle: action + hero + thought (all together!)
