Lighting techniques of top cinematographers

Directors of photography like Roger Deakins, Robert Elswit, and Robert Richardson have distinct styles but are nevertheless first class examples of cinematography done right. I am looking for resources that delve into the type of lights they use, lighting plans (specific setups from certain scenes), and examples of intensities of the used lights (in LM). Any of these would be helpful really.

Online listings for academic education technology jobs in North America

A UK colleague, who has worked for about a decade at various management and director levels in the UK academic sector (Education technology projects and services) is starting to consider moving abroad, but continuing the same line of work. His contact network in the education/academic sector outside of the UK is weak, and he doesn't know where to start looking online for positions in USA or Canadian Universities, Colleges, and Education Technology services and businesses that serve academia. Which are the good websites, and online listings, for these kinds of positions?

What anecdote has a staff adding an intentional mistake to fixate boss?

I can't remember this anecdote for the life of me. But the jist was, a very picky director / designer / CEO's people would plant an intentional piece of ugliness (something off center, something ugly) into a project, or design, or film, to fixate him, so he wouldn't tear apart any other parts of the design.

Looking for a specific Tarantino quote

Quentin Tarantino, in an interview, said something along the lines of, "The medium that I work in is the audience's emotions." I think that the interview was relatively recent, either about Inglourious Basterds or Django, and it may even have been referenced on Metafilter, but now that I'm looking for it, I can't find it. So, did he actually say something to this effect? If yes, where did he say it and what was the actual statement?

Best Music Videos of the 00s.

How did Roman Polanski direct scenes shot in America in Ghost Writer

In what sense was Roman Polanski the director of "Ghost Writer"? I see in his wikipedia article that he has been unable to visit many countries because he would be deported to America to face rape charges. I just watched the movie and was clear to me that a lot of stuff was shot in America; the IMDB indeed lists Germany and the UK as locations, but also Massachusetts. How did he direct those scenes from across the ocean? And..when was this all shot? Apparently Polanski had been under house arrest in Switzerland in 2009. Maybe I just don't totally grok the job of a director, but I don't see how he could have directed the scenes in America. Nobody else is listed on the credits as a director. Was there a Ghost director involved?

Natural leadership

I've noticed that some people have what I'm going to call "natural leadership"--that is, even if they're put into a situation where everyone is formally equal, they're the ones everyone looks to. I've been in countless such situations, and there's almost always been one person who was the one everyone else said to check with. I want to be that guy. What do I need to do to be that guy?

Where is Woody Allen?

I just watched the Golden Globe Awards show and Woody Allen's Vicky Cristina Barcelona won the Golden Globe for best movie (musical or comedy). Except only a bunch of producers and Penelope Cruz went on the stage, tens of people were thanked and nobody, nobody ever mentioned Woody Allen's name. WTF?

Can I embed special characters in my Director text field?

Macromedia (sorry, Adobe) Director question. If I paste text from Word etc. into my Director text field, and I then select it and change it into an embedded font, will there be problems with curly quotes, em-dashes and such on other users' computers? Or does the "embedding" process enable me to use these characters? I don't care too much about curly quotes, but I do like my em-dashes & would rather not have to change them all to double hyphens.
