One of the things my students have heard from me over the years is the idea of being a time traveler. Not in the sense of creative writing or anything like that. But the idea that wouldn't it be nice to go back in time to fix a mistake? Or to right a wrong? I use it in the idea of planning out your shot. The creator must plan out EVERYTHING that the scene is calling for. If it moves in the scene, the creator can animate it to see their vision before even doing a single shot.
