no, that would be an image of a smiley for a few frames on film, essentially making this statement if you buy into semiotics, "here (there) is a smiley face"

which is different from using elements of punctuation: cuts, dissolves, wipes, beats, color mattes, or tones with duration. the idea isn't to use images... it's to use what editors put between images to help separate or inflect clauses, just as we use the punctuation with which we make usual emoticons.

whatever course you just started, DROP OUT NOW.

relax, xixax. isn't this the place for idle chatter?

jeeeeeez.  wash in. cut to red for eight frames. bars and tone for two seconds. cut to red for three frames. fade out for 49 frames.
Obviously what you are doing right now is called (in my upcoming book of psychology at least) validation. I think it's a normal thing to do. People will reply, say anything, and then you're gonna do what you were subconsciently thinking of doing all along.

:oops:

to clarify, none of this crap would ever make it into any of my work.

Ah whatever, don't let these guys pressure you into dumping a concept you had. At this stage you should be experimenting and then when you inevitably realize how dumb an idea is you move on.
