C.

Artistic quality of individual photographs, though required, is not responsible for conveying the rhythm of the movie. The more important aspects are the placement and order of the pictures that represent different actions.
C clearly lays out that having good artistic quality photographs will not achieve a good rhythm of movie

Answer must be C. E is not the answer because it tells only that a movie maker must highlight many different aspects of the action taking place and totally ignores artistic quality of the individual photographic images. but the question tells that the highlighting different aspects of the action taking place in front of the camera is more important than the artistic quality of the individual photographic images

The most important aspect of moviemaking is conveying a scene’s rhythm. Conveying rhythm depends less on the artistic quality of the individual photographic images than on how the shots go together and the order in which they highlight different aspects of the action taking place in front of the camera.

If the statements above are true, which of the following must be true on the basis of them?

(A) The artistic quality of the individual photographic image is unimportant in movie photography.
-->extreme statement..image is important but timing of the scenes are more important
(B) Photographers known for the superb artistic quality of their photographs are seldom effective as moviemakers.
-->another extreme statement..some photographers may very well be great moviemakers
(C) Having the ability to produce photographs of superb artistic quality does not in itself guarantee having the ability to be a good moviemaker.
-->This sounds like a solid answer. We can infer from the passage that rhythm depends less on the "artistic quality" of photographs and more on timing and placement. Let's move on to the next choice to see if anything else is better.
(D) Movie photographers who are good at their jobs rarely give serious thought to the artistic quality of the photographs they take.
-->this may be true or it may not..since this is an inference question we have to be 100% sure.
(E) To convey a scene’s rhythm effectively, a moviemaker must highlight many different aspects of the action taking place.
-->this is not true...to convey a scene's rhythm effectively the director needs to pay attention to timing and placement not just highlight many different aspects of actions taking place.
Please explain.

C final answer.

E is more of a Premise to conclusion..

Unimportant is too strong a word ...

Thats a stretch. Quality of individual pictures doesn't matter but it would definitely help if the pictures are good.
(C) Having the ability to produce photographs of superb artistic quality does not in itself guarantee having the ability to be a good moviemaker.
This is correct. Calculated argument.
(D) Movie photographers who are good at their jobs rarely give serious thought to the artistic quality of the photographs they take.
Thats too strong as well.
(E) To convey a scene’s rhythm effectively, a moviemaker must highlight many different aspects of the action taking place.
This is not a conclusion.
Please explain.

I went with E after narrowing it to C and E. Although I think I change my opinion to C.

Between C and E, E is extreme. So, through POE, C.

C and E are the contenders. The extreme word 'MUST' eliminates E. Good question. The option E has similar wording to the stimulus and on the real GMAT 'E' becomes very attractive under time pressure. Many people who gave the correct answer C now may choose E because of time pressure.

Haha. I hope the converse is also true. I chose E this time. I do realize C makes more sense and E is extreme. But I hope that on test day, I choose C, even though I will be under pressure.

C

I do not see A, B, or D mentioned anywhere in the stem, so they are easily eliminated. Answer choice E is also easily eliminated because the stem says that it is important how the scene is highlighted, not that many aspects need to be highlighted. Answer choice C is correct because of the conclusion of the stem: just because someone is artistic does not mean that they will be a good moviemaker. This is because artistic ability comes second to the ability to put the shots together,

Good question
I was stuck between C and E, but went on to select C.
We need to find Must be true answer i.e. something that follows from the argument.

Lets examine E:(E) To convey a scene’s rhythm effectively, a moviemaker must highlight many different aspects of the action taking place.

But what is mentioned in the argument is :the order in which they highlight different aspects of the action taking place in front of the camera.

The argument stated its should be presented in order but option E states many different aspects should be presented.....MArk the transistion from orderly presentation to just many presentation.
Moreover, The perfect moviemaker will need artistic quality of photograghy though lesser. Hence option E is just one side picture of the Movieaker's quality..There may be many other which are not stated. When we say someone is best at something he must possess all qualities of the field whether its weighted avg is lesser or greater

E is mostly restating the argument. Inference cannot be a rephrase. Inference should be something that we can conclusively say from the argument!

This is a awesome example of SHELL GAME type questions. Means the question is almost correct but the test maker induce a small detail which change the meaning of the complete statement. Like between C and E the word MANY is induced as an additional information.

This is a common trap in GMAT.

Definitely between C and E. I eliminated E based on "must" and "many" in the answer phrase. C follows very logically from what the author is stating in his premises.

Conveying rhythm depends less on the artistic quality of the individual photographic images than on how the shots go together and the order in which they highlight different aspects of the action taking place in front of the camera.

(C) Having the ability to produce photographs of superb artistic quality does not in itself guarantee having the ability to be a good moviemaker.
(E) To convey a scene’s rhythm effectively, a moviemaker must highlight many different aspects of the action taking place.

option E is wrong because a moviemakers can effectively convey the scene's rthytm by paying close attention on how the shots go together and how he effectively highlights and uses the actions taking place... It is just not by mere highlighting different aspects of an action can a scene be rhtymically good. Hence ruled out E.
option C, on the other hand, certainly makes a valid claim that being a good photographer does not guarantee one to be a good moviemaker. Since it involves more than just producing superb artistic quality photographs. It requires skills to how one uses diiferent shots and how cleanly he merge those by highlighting different actions..
