There are so many fools in this comment section whom evidently lack the skill, intelligence and discipline to shoot film, and it makes them angry that there are people out there who can produce better images in a more difficult medium than they could ever create with their digital, easy-bake-oven cameras. You have RAW, Log-C, and unlimited do-overs in case you couldn't be bothered to expose or focus properly the first take. Everything is provided for you and made as easy as possible by technology, to which you cling like an embarrassing and compromising addiction. Every year, some new technology emerges which promises to hold yet another part of your clean, pale hand and lead you safely through the filmmaking process. All the while, you come to falsely believe that the dumbing-down of every part of cinematography would help you to become better filmmakers, faster, when in reality these technologies do little more than stunt your intellectual growth. The struggle to master your control over the image is gone – it's been taken care of for you by a piece of software. You can now sit back, relax, and become ever-increasingly irrelevant as your job becomes ever-more accessible to hordes of other people, who, like you, would probably reconsider their careers if it weren’t that this one was so clearly becoming “easy” to get into and “master”.
Your unwarranted, unprovoked vitriol is embarrassing and you come off like climate-change deniers or Donald Trump supporters. In short, foolish, young, and naive.
God forbid it be difficult, that you have problems to solve or things to learn.
I can't wait until they come out with a camera that just does all of the work for me.
That being said, this short, shot on digital by a man who clearly loves and appreciates 70mm and everything it represents, is great. The Hateful Eight was supremely well shot and it was very special to see it projected in 70mm. Thanks for sharing this video.
