It's those damn capital one venture card commercials. I also think that he just doesn't say no to anything and so we see him too much. He was good in kingsmen though.
How'd that last shot look? Let's play it back, oh right, film doesn't do that.
And if we were to shoot on film the way we shoot digitally, so much footage would go to waste because we're used to capturing everything and deleting what we don't need because it doesn't matter.
I think the independent video world is going to go through the same transition the music world went through. After the ibsession with digital, a lot of musicians went back to making vinyl records and they have sold in very high numbers.
For only $30,000 (and I do mean only), you can get a Cintel film scanner that will process 16mm and 35mm film.https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/products/cintel
If people are spending thousands of dollars on digital cameras, why not buy a scanner like that and an old film camera like you did? And maybe a group of people or something go in on the scanner? Maybe even nofilmschool gets a scanner and becomes the place for all independent film makers to process their film. But as I read what I just wrote, I realize that I'm confusing myself with how film works and that scanner isn't processing the film, it's just digitizing it and the film would still need to be developed and color timed somewhere and that's the real issue isn't it?
There are a lot more applications this is useful for other than just narrative. Short films aren't the only things people shoot at night.
Any documentary could benefit from this especially nature documentaries that would rather capture the image of an animal than something especially cinematic.
Just because something doesn't fit into your process doesn't mean that it doesn't fit another persons process. Not everyone cares about the highest quality image, sometimes just the content itself is enough.
Hateful Eight is 100% shot on film and will have an early release at theatres that will project with film.
Interstellar was shot 100% on film.
Star Wars The Force Awakens was shot 100% on film.
The entourage movie was 100% shot on film except for shots where they used a DJI drone.
Breaking Bad was also mostly shot on film.
The instances where digital cameras were used are instances where it would not be possible to get the shot with film for one reason or another.
The big issue I have with buying M43 lenses is that they won't work with any other cameras. I have a gh2 and a pocket camera. I bought the Voightlander 17.5, 42.5 lenses and while I really like them, I kind of regret it because now I'm stuck with a very limited choice of cameras.
I'm fine with this setup as something to use for situations where there's no budget to rent gear and I really like how compact everything is. But, in the end I just don't want to spend anymore money on lenses that I can't use on other cameras I might upgrade to in the future.
If I'm spending $1,000-$2,000 on a lens, I'd rather buy an adaptor so I can use it with different cameras.
