Apparently the technique is used extensively in "Citizen Kane" and other classic-type films, not so much today.
Love that book, was the text in my very first film class. Still informs my work today.

Good ol' 60i, I have final cut express so I don't think I can shoot in 24f or 30f.

Same here. It was a primary text in RTF317, Narrative Strategies, one of my favorite classes in film school at UT Austin as taught by the dynamic duo, Jim Wehmeyer and Eithne Johnson. It still sits on my book shelf today, somewhat worn out but worth its weight in gold. Thanks for mentioning it,

The defraction problem only applies to cameras with digital sensors, not with film cameras. Not everything that applied to film applies to digital! However, because the digital sensor is smaller than a frame of (35mm) film, you get a greater depth of field for the same magnification. You don't need to use such a small aperture to get the same effect.
The diffraction problem exists for film cameras as well, just at smaller apertures, F22 etc.

This book rules. I've read it cover to cover already. Actually, I'm at the very end, reading the author's thesis on "Citizen Kane."

The problem is, I'm pretty new to video and I'm learning by leaps and bounds. But when reading a great book like this there is almost too much information being thrown at me at once. Every little section I read has so much good info that I'm constantly reading and going "yeah, I want to do that," or "wow, what a great idea! I'm doing that next," or "Deep focus? That sounds cool. I'll use that on my next shoot..."

So I need to learn to pace myself. But a very good book. Mr. Giannetti, my hat's off to you!
