It is real simple people. Shoot it on any film format Super 8mm, 16mm, Super 16mm or if you have a decent budget 35mm and if you're Coppola or Spielberg 65mm then transfer it to digital for a composite Master and for the distributors who would normally have to risk millions on thousands of 35mm or 70mm prints. That is if there are still any major house film projectors in operation. It is not digital or film. It is shoot on film and distribute on digital. That is the beautiful future. If we filmmakers compromise half way then more distributors will give us a deal as long as they don't have to spend all that money of thousands of prints. Remember it is the film business. Not the film warm and fuzzy feeling association. It is a business and the core of any business is to make more money than spent. To shoot digital is too risky look what happened with Toy Story. Millions were spent on the production and then it was all accidentally erased. If someone on the production team had not had a back up copy at their house (by chance) then it would have meant disaster for producer and distributors and the investors. I personally would rather see one of the majors put more money into TV advertising than in prints. It the new way and it is better than the old way. So let us stop the division among ourselves and agree to shoot it on film and distribute it on digital. If you look at producer directors like Cameron and Lucas who now only shoot on digital, you also will see that they spend a fortune on these movies anyway. They prefer digital for artistic and other reasons like no blur when the action on scene is fast because it was shot to the equivalent of what would be sixty frames per second. But to me that is a pale comparison to what film even at 24fps has to offer from a look (overall) perspective. If you ever went to one of my late friend Brian England's (A.C.E.) film and digital side by side comparison you would in no way choose to shoot on digital. There was no competition, digital looked like what it is and that is video and film looked like what it is and that is FILM!!! Digital shooting is still good for TV small screen or computer monitor so what difference does that make. But the theatrical screen belongs to film other wise it is like popcorn without the butter, salt and scent. Yeah you may be eating popcorn but there is the cost of taste flavor and joy. Also as technology changes in digital so does how you shoot it on digital what was good yesterday may not be workable tomorrow. Just shoot it on film and have it distributed on digital a perfect marriage.
