Depends what you mean by "would work". I've done a lot of films and shorts for major festivals, in fact I finished one just last week. They are always, in my experience, in at least 5.1. An upmixing...

No. It was often referred to as the "golden arch" although the term "golden ratio" was also common but I can't say I've ever heard it called the "golden spiral". I came across it about 30 years ago,...
