Realization about how I take in movies and music videos: I used to watch things like a consumer, like an audience member waiting to be entertained. I watch things like a creative person now. Very high empathy with all the little choices that are made in producing each moment of screentime, etc. Everyart feels like the web now. Each piece I study, I experience, I look at it as if it were put up by somefriend on a website, and I vicariously go through the production choices. I automatically go so far as to imagine how a musical artist had to be talked into walking a certain way down a ramp in a video.

It's so much more engaging to think like the director!
