Right now is a very exiting time in filmmaking, films like Russian Ark are taking advantage of the ease, cost, time, and availabily to make a film digitally. For those who don’t know, Russian Ark is an approx.90min. film shot in one long tracking shot. Shot in HD recorded on to a special hard drive, the filmmakers had only one day to shoot the entire film. Yes, the time of limited film stock, expensive film developing, and expensive lighting and sound equipment is quickly becomming a thing of the past. Of course, DV isnt perfected yet, and is no where near the quality of film, but mostlikly withing the nex few years, DV could look even better than film. I recently saw Spy Kids 3D in DLP Digital Projection, and this format has several advantages over film prints, first of all, you can play the film over and over, without causing pops and scratches on the movie, the films could last almost forever, because it’s not on film, and it doesnt go through problems like yellowing syndrome. It also looks far superior to film, exept for the fact that it doesnt have that distinctive “Film Look”.
