Ticket prices continue to rise, as the costs of filming and distribution go down. Not related to the quality of the image on screen, but will this ever be discussed, for the benefit of the consumer?

If you work in photography a lot and you edit your images for hours you see very dramatic times where film or digital come out on top, or let you down. Even with the best plugins and software people aren’t “designers” to the point where they know everything there is to know about colour, mood … if that was true every cameraman might be some kind of artist genius just because they learn a few simple principles.
I hope that digital age people discover film and film age people discover digital – and that both sides improve. One way i can see this happening is that, since most digital cameras are still “emulation” of film photo or cinema cameras … even the way they grain, create noise is being improved to look more “filmic”.
Film itself – if there were more demand, would have a lot of R&D to apply new chemistry and that could create exceptional new film looks – and really whatever helps people learn and vision things, and achieve that vision is enriched by having both.

I have photographed wild animals in Kenya and Tanzania using slide film and I have some of the best photos in the world. Digital SLR cameras have along way to go. I have just bought another Film camera to add to my film camera collection

Digital movies are more efficient and not as costly as film reels, but at the same time, audiences lose the feel of what a movie was like, we cannot let that happen. People need to watch classic movies. They need to know how film came about and how it can be improved in the future. I like film more than digital because I like the authenticity and the effort of the cast and crew, and I tend to feel more involved in a movie. I don’t know why, but I appreciate the reality of film, because it keeps the essence of filmmaking alive. I like digital filmmaking, however, because of its “crystal clear” picture, but digital should not be used for all films. Films that involve special effects and other qualities should have digital film. I also like the way digital can look like film, but it just doesn’t feel right. Film is film and digital is digital, period. People cannot let film die as an art form. Digital should not take over film. People should use what they want, and no one should tell others what to do. I personally think that some movie theaters should keep film projectors, just to keep the originality and essence of film alive for future generations.

The article is saying that he’ll be ‘fighting in the revolution’ meaning he’ll be fighting against digital.

It’s a bit like caring whether a painting was water color or oil. Does it make you feel something and can it hold you in the story? Good art comes in all forms and I hope people with work in every medium. I think I’m going to throw in an eight-track now. I loved those things.

I love filmmaking. To me, digital will never replace film in my heart. Even though, I love digital photography, You can appreciate the efforts and strains of film. Everyone loves new. I listen to what’s new on the radio every day, but I never get tired of having some Roger Waters inside me. (keep it civil, guys) Like said here, we won’t be going away, yet. I may not be an old hip guy, as I’m merely twenty, but I can understand and appreciate all of what film has given. As properly stated, digital has its immense benefits with production and working hours, but film possesses a certain texture that is unrivaled.

WE LIVE ON.

I’m not sure if this happens with digital. The title “FILM” I feel should not be exploited when digital is used.A film cannot be erased It can only be destroyed. I feel it is not ethical to call a MOVIE ( What a ghastly terminology) a FILM when its made up of invisible electrons. In stead of pretending. If you have made a tape TELL the truth. Dont call it a FILM

It is really well film… If he doesn’l like film, and i like his movie then i might share the thing as him.

Capturing data in RGB just wont capture all those tones that film can. Cameras like the Arri Alexa have got the Dynamic range part down. But currently digital colors aren’t being captured with the same depth and clarity as film. It’s just a matter of time before this all changes. And I’m personally excited for that day. The day when digital (and the tools to process it) become a lot more sophisticated. And when we can truly retire shooting on film without any sacrifices.

There is something about the digital picture that is just too clean and lacks a certain gritty depth that film possesses. There’s a deep tone and resonance to film that from what I’ve seen so far digital just cannot imitate or inhabit. And im at a point where watching all these new digital movies causes my head to become rather irritable because of the bland, samey picture quality of it. Its ability create and capture tone depth and atmosphere I believe is vastly inferior to film. It Looks as though digital has it’s production, financial benefits in terms of time and location options, but for me that’s where it ends. If you are going to a job may as well take the time to do it properly.
