    Some films get pirated today by delivery drivers taking the prints to a digitizing facility.

I'm sure some cleaver hacker will find a way to break the encryption like what happened to DVDs. The movie and music industry is always try to stay one step ahead of the pirates. If you want free or cheap movies, travel to Asia. You can buy perfect copies of DVDs with nice packaging for about a $1.

    Let's hope they don't just blow all the money and save some of it for a rainy day...

    Agree. At that point the print supply was in the distributor's hands. I suspect that one of these two prints was from a master neg not an intermediate, had been to Cannes and was on that occasion in good shape and considered fit for local premiere, but not so.

    Give it 10 years when all the old projectors and digitisers have been junked, and some genius will come up with the idea of sending out film prints as a way to beat all the pirates hacking encrypted satellite transmissions...
    An awful lot of electrons were terribly inconvenienced in the making of this post.

    I wonder if our gigantic hole in the ground up the street, which is going to become the new Pacific Film Archive, is going to actually show film.
    Otherwise they should be honest enough to rename it as the Pacific Pixel Archive. Oh well, between that new UC building and the latest Forrest Gump football scholarship fund, there's only going to be a few thousand exceptional Calif students each year who can't afford to attend there anymore.

    I keep saying how many young people I run into that *LOVE* shooting film and how they are not only not jaded from losing products that very few ever used but are amazed at how many great films there are out there.

    So every year, I shoot black and white at the Winter X Games and this year it is some of my Kodak HIE in 35mm & 120. Today, this 21 year old woman was over the moon to see me shooting a Nikon FM3A and Hasselblad. We talked for awhile and she really echoed what I have been telling you all for years, stop pining for what we no longer have, get out and crush it with fresh imagery on film, because that is what moves film forward, not AARP conventions of how it used to be....

    Cool, do you ever use an IR filter with HIE or not? Glad you keep on going.
