      A collection of perspectives from a group of Hollywood directors

      A good documentary... interviews with many famous directors, their views on the change from film film to digital film record the latest big change in the history of film. Nolan is really old school. 2333 Almost all directors have to admit that digital cinema has indeed brought a lot of convenience. Radicals such as Cameron George Lucas even asserted that the era of film is over, and only Nolan insists on using film to make films. The old way, and straight (arrogant) said (jiao) that all...

      Anywhere except the title

      After watching this documentary about the digital battle of film film, I feel that I have taken a very informative course in film history and film technology history. Indeed, although this documentary is only less than 100 minutes long, it tells about a very important event in the history of film - the digital revolution and the decline of film.

      Except for a few directors or DPs, most filmmakers have turned to digital cinema. Although directors and DPs have negative attitudes towards...

      We never met, but we will always miss celluloid

      All the physical things, physical and physical contact, make me feel spontaneous, primitive and rough comfort. I firmly believe that pen and paper writing, paper books, CDs, cinemas, and film will always shine in the waves of the times.

      I remember the 40-degree summer when I was in junior high school,

      It was 2009, and I was sweating profusely and ran all over Changsha to find a photo studio that could develop...

      "Yin and Yang" Notes

      This documentary tells the transition from the film era to the digital era from multiple perspectives, and provides a rich presentation of the changes in all parties in the film production industry process, as well as the impact of these changes on the film itself.

      Director: For a director, shooting on film means that no matter what is shot today, the dailies have to be seen the next day. So digital shooting offers a new way of directing to see the "final picture" at all times. A roll...

      The film that film enthusiasts should watch (I don't count), tells the history of film development, and in short, is the competition between film and digital. Later, big directors such as Nolan and Finch were more opposed to 3D technology, and felt that it was just a fad~~ This point of view is the same as me~~~~~ The level is not enough, so I can't rate this...

    Movie plot

As time gradually moves towards the 21st century, chemical photography approaches a critical point, with little room for improvement, and it is increasingly unable to cope with the film industry's demands for new technologies and new shooting...

    Movie quotes

    • George Lucas: There's too much digital information out there not to figure out a fool proof way to store it forever.

    • Michael Chapman: In a way, cinema was the church of the 20th century.
