Folks need to learn their film history...like anything before 1985. Lucas? Spielberg? Come on. These guys aren't doing what they do without their inspirations from Orson Wells, Alfred Hitchcock, Akira Kurasawa, Ingmar Bergman, John Ford, Charlie Chaplain, etc. Did they change film marketing and create the tentpole Summer movie? Sure, I guess. But that could be looked at as a negative. Watch intervciews with Lucas and Spielberg where they name their influencial directors and films, AND WATCH THEM!
I'm really not seeing the differences between 16mm and digital these days. Minutiae. "Picking the fly shit out of the pepper." Not enough to go to a film work flow.
What kind of dialog is that? Who the f**k talks like that? Woody Allen lite.
I guess when you wipe your ass with $100 bills you can make these kind of demands.
