April 2, 2012 § Leave a comment
Watch interviews with film directors, cinematographers, film students, producers, colorists, artists, technologists, scientists, engineers, and editors, like Steven Soderbergh, Martin Scorsese, George Lucas, David Fincher, James Cameron, Danny Boyle, David Lynch, and Lars Von Trier, as they discuss the digital invasion in movie making over the last 20 or so years as “technology pushes the art, and the art pushes technology.”
Many film enthusiasts may recall that the recent Academy Award winning film, “Slumdog Millionaire,” was shot almost entirely digitally, reminding us that this “alternative” to the photochemical process, which had been the norm for the past 100 years, was now sharing the stage with, if not taking a backseat all together, to the digital revolution.
Go “Side by Side,” and behind the camera of your favorite films as “Point Break” actor, Keanu Reeves, interviews film legends, about their opinions and experiences collaborating with film and digital. Is there room for both? Can the two get along? Is film facing extinction? Can you guess which film maker feels passionately for which medium?
