    Steven Spielberg & Martin Scorsese: the joy of celluloid

    http://m.guardian.co.uk/artanddesign...n&type=article

    This is definitely worth a read.

    Don't know if this has been posted before; working from my phone.

    Ansel Adams had the Zone System... I'm working on the points system. First I points it here, and then I points it there...

    Neither Dean, nor Spielberg, nor Scorsese work with celluloid...

    I watched a Spielberg shoot and they were definitely using film.

    None of the big movie camera manufacturers are making film cameras anymore.

    The great surprise to me is the apparent eloquence and thoughtfulness of Keanu Reeves. Whoda thunk?

    +1 for Keanu Reeves

    also this gem:

    "My greatest fear is that as a discarded medium and corporate outcast, analogue will no longer be essential to visual education. Many young people will not know the difference between hand and button, they will only know the button; and their use of technology will be constricted by their ignorance of hand work. They will not perceive the qualities of optical photography because their eyes will only know digital imagery" Mitch Epstein

    Aristophanes,

    I tried to hint in my remark not at film as such but at the material said to be used.
    Celluloid has long gone as material for cine-camera- as well as for cine-print-film. I found it funny that such a long gone material is still used by the press as synomyn for film, when most young people even don't have any idea what perforated 35mm film is for.

    Well, I had been grumbling...

    I don't have any real facts but I do remember reading that the material used for movie camera film was not the same as that used for still cameras. Something to do with a weaker material being used so that in the event of a jam, the film was damaged rather than the delicate transport mechanism.
