Dont need to read this article as they are just doing what Samsung has been doing for Years to get 48mp.. click bate I guess. I only came here to post this comment..
Why do they even list toy story when it's just his voice. He ain't really in it..
This is No film School now, a gossip rag.. What are they going to start talking about the Kardashians now? I guess it is truly "No Film School".
i saw this in theater when it 1st came out. I love this director & Bollywood movies. If you don't see stuff like this you are truly missing out. Lots of movies from other countries are amazing. I'm happy the author of this article finally started to discover films outside of USA. I am annoyed that they say this is not a Bollywood movie as it truly is, as if they think Bollywood is a bad label. Tons of Bollywood films are amazing like this.
Sounds to me like all these specs where put in place by someone who is not a film maker and knows nothing about the process.. as if they are going to put all the effects and color corrections back in that in many films, like a Marvel movie are 90% CGI. As if the capture elements matter all that mutch. You can up res HD to 4K and fill in all the missing pixels with using a tool called A Computer.
I can see them having to have some standards in place, but a great film even shot on 16mil they will take, like Nightcrawer that came out just a few years ago.
Content is king. And a lot of the films they licens is only for a period of time, until the license expires. If they didn't finance it themselves, it's not like they own it forever. And it if you sold all rights to your indie movie to them forever thats on you.
I buy it, as people are forgetting that shooting film is about a 30-1 ratio of what's never used and ends up on the cutting room floor. With digital, that's all practically free. Making a film print is only about $4000 each for a feature. So that's a really small amount spent to goto film. And they probably didn't do all the inter-negatives, inter-positives, and then film print, which is about 5 steps from the original negative to print process. They scan digital films to film all the time as the world market oversees has lots of theaters that still only show film so it's a normal process to make a film print. Probably every film made still has film prints to play in those theaters unless it's a streaming only release. In truth it's all not a big deal.
