    I don't watch football, but NFL films are so well done I find I actually enjoy them, most of the time

    the slow-mo replays are the best IMO.

    ^Me too.^
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    I am sorry that I missed a bit of it, but it does show that film is not dead.

    Some info from the Wiki page:

    NFL Films operates its own in-house 16mm and 35mm Color Negative Processing Lab. ... The lab is open to the public for development needs. Clients include feature length and short films shot on location in Philadelphia as well as students at local universities.

    Salon.com television critic Matt Zoller Seitz has called NFL Films "the greatest in-house P.R. machine in pro sports history . . . an outfit that could make even a tedious stalemate seem as momentous as the battle for the Alamo."

    That's cool! I would love to visit just cause and develop a roll as a "college student"

    It is a lot of 16mm in today's world but not a lot in film terms. That is around 1200 release prints for a 16mm distribution (if there were any still) give or take. A 120 minute 35mm release print is around 2 miles in length and thousands used to be churned out around the world for each film with a global distribution.

    1000 miles is better than nothing though, as I still like using S16 so am glad it is still around!

    You compare volumes of release films with that of camera films.

    Which can be done estimating the importance for the industry as such. But for a single enterprise using 16mm film today that figure is impressive.
