i was reading the CML conversation about darkness
And David Mullen mentions:
"Because some directors confuse "dark", "dim", and "shadowy" as all one thing, it's best to find some examples that you both can study and agree on."
It made me wonder what are the differences? Do we have standards for what is dark vs dim vs Shadowy?

No, there are no technical definitions of those terms photographically which is why you need to discuss it further.

Ok, so everyone can have their own interpretation of what they could mean, as long as the filmmakers working together are in synch on their definitions. Very well. Thanks
