### What technical aspect would you find cross cutting?

Editing
Explanation
Editing is a technical aspect that is considered cross-cutting because it is involved in various stages of the production process.

Editing is a crucial step that involves modifying and rearranging content to improve its quality, coherence, and overall impact. It requires technical skills, attention to detail, and a deep understanding of the desired outcome. As editing is not limited to a specific area or department, it cuts across different aspects of production, making it a cross-cutting technical aspect.

### Dialogue is Diegetic or Non-Diegetic?

• A.

Non-Diegetic

• B.

Diegetic

A. Non-Diegetic
Explanation
In film and media, diegetic refers to elements that exist within the world of the story, while non-diegetic refers to elements that exist outside of the story world. Voice over is considered non-diegetic because it is typically used to provide narration or commentary that is not heard by the characters within the story. It is a storytelling device that is added in post-production and is not part of the characters' reality.

Rate this question:

• 19.

### What lighting is brighter natural or artificial?

• A.

Artificial

• B.

Natural

B. Natural
Explanation
Natural lighting is brighter than artificial lighting because it is produced by the sun, which is a powerful and intense source of light. The sun emits a wide spectrum of light, including ultraviolet and infrared rays, which makes it appear brighter and more vibrant compared to artificial lighting. Artificial lighting, on the other hand, is created by man-made sources such as light bulbs, which are not as powerful as the sun and often emit a narrower spectrum of light. Therefore, natural lighting is generally considered to be brighter and more natural-looking than artificial lighting.
