Do these count as 'art'?
They certainly can do. On a number of levels. But the whole film - camera shots, transitions, script, music, everything together can be art if its done artistically.
Cool - I was just wondering as I mostly post about books and/or films... or of course recruitment drives for new minions heh...
Art is in the eye of the beerholder. Blue Poles was considered to be a great puchase for the Art Gallery of Australia but many did not. A white canvas could be called "Polar Bear eating Vanilla Icecream in a Snow Storm" or a blank canvas.
