"He believes that Kodak and film will endure, due to his commitment...."
How pretentious, so he thinks it's going to be up to him to actually decide about the future of an industry, the one that make celluloid? Really Quentin as long as YOU commit film will be safe?
I never liked the 16 years old mind of that guy, but I had never realized the ego that was attached to it.
Trailer looks amazing, very well done, extremely professional. I'm not interested in this kind of stories, but I think you should be able to get many people to see it. You do put to rest the worries of people constantly trying to buy new gear, though. The GH4 is more than enough to tell a story, just for showing that, congrats to you.
This whole article is BS.

I agree, Gosh, but face the fact. Apart for an exercise in style of an established filmmaker who made a very bad movie with three Iphone, Tangerine, can you think of anything you enjoyed in a theater near you filmed with a GH4, GH5 or a Blackmagic camera? You can Gosh us all you want, it's a fact! Most crap, and trust me it's crap, that you see on Netflix is filmed with Alexas.
It's clear that anything that is marketed to poor filmmakers, such as Blackmagic pocket 4K, even the URSA, forget the GH5s are not considered by anybody serious about making a film what will go somewhere. People should seriously think about this before buying equipment and instead work on their story, way of financing that will give them access to a real crew and real equipment. As far as I know, I'm never seen any movie in a theater that was filmed with what's in "fashion" in filmmaker's forums. Nobody is filming anything with Blackmagic or Panasonic. Weddings, maybe?
