    Can I use videogames as a source of filmmaking and cinematography inspiration?

    Whatever inspires you whether it is video games, comics, paintings, films, the news, or whatever. It's all valid. Inspiration comes from all over. I'm not much of a video games guy myself but I can totally see how they could inspire film ideas and approaches.
