I keep noticing the many parallels between UX design and film editing. As an editor, I was always looking for the right cut to optimize the flow. If a cut could be made from one shot to the next, and the viewer didn’t have to change their fixation from that cut, it was a happy thing. To create tension, you do the opposite. You also place stuff in the middle of the shot to make it feel more isolated and alone. As such, it makes total sense in the West to have the “comfort” or expected action to be nestled in the right corner of the uncomfortable, pay-attention-to-me, center-of-screen dialog box, eagerly awaiting your action to move the narrative along.
