who said that drama or teen comedies don’t feel authentic when shooting digital? who said that? would you recognize the digital aspect with Once Upon a Time in Mexico if nobody told you? Or Collateral?
i did notice the digital on both films without being told, however i am on Seb’s side.
teh reason i noticed teh digital on Once Upon a time in Mexico is because teh quality of digital is actualy far better than the quality of film
and the digital in Collateral to me was one of its best attributes, collateral showcased a taste of the gritty look of digital filmmaking and Seb is definitely right about Grindhouse being about cheap films, grindhouse filmmakers today would use digital, plus it is going to be made to look like film so what the fuck are you complaining about, you wont know the difference
i am not here to advertise that digital has the “film look” necessarily, whatever youo think the “film look” is, but Seb is right, shooting digital is cheaper and has countless opportunities open to it and who the fuck cares how it was done, it is the final product and digital stands up to film in every way
i have a feeling that the people arguing against film dont actually know much about film and the pros and cons it is all nostalgia, i understand that, you want to keep film cause it was teh original and all the old classics were made on film and you feel threatened by this new technology, but it is only nostalgia, dont fool yourself into thinking that film is actually better than digital
note: i am not against film in any way, i only think digital is going to take over from now on and it isnt a gimmick, it is just as Seb said like vinyl to CDs.
