So true Mike. Like an Foley artist or a dyer/ager, 24-frame video playback is little known outside the world of motion pictures. In fact, it's so hard to explain sometimes, I tell people, including some family members, that I operate a Camera.

As far as coordination goes, all the background sources are generated from an array of Mac computers usually running Quicktime movies. The hero sources (scripted story point action) are running on Director, an interactive programming software originally designed for the gaming world. Graphic images and animated sequences can then be programmed on a cue by a single stroke of the keyboard.

Oh, and by the way, DiCaprio has two assistants.

this is very interesting - 24 frame playback is one of those elusive credits in movie credits, like Best Boy, Clapper/Loader and Assistant to Mr. DiCaprio. Seriously, what does he need an assistant for?

I think the audience takes for granted that all the video playing on screens, even in complex sets like Star Trek, are not just added in post. How it everything coordinated to match the action?
