I just read  an article in MOVIE MAKER magazine that has my head spinning.

Theres an interview with Steve Bellamy, President of Kodak Film.  Bellamy gave a bunch of reasons as to why independent filmmakers should be shooting on film, not digital.

Well, I don’t know any “filmmaker” today who wouldn’t WANT to be shooting on true film. But its too expensive.

Bellamy said “ No one ever said ‘lets make this film look more like digital’ 

Well thats true, I do EVERYTHING I can to make my digital footage look “cinematic” Filters, de saturation…..  I’ve gotten pretty good at making color digital look like high contrast Black and White, but Im not satisfied with making digital look like color film.

Bellamy said “Film is LESS expensive than digital, no ifs ands or buts”

Well I could give him dozens, if not hundreds of no ifs ands or buts…

He said “camera packages are cheaper with film. Your shooting ratios are lower, your performances are better. People prepare better and storyboard with film— in video they don’t.  Film doesn’t have a video village”

He is SO wrong  on that.  I prep as if it were film. I storyboard. I don’t have a “video village” anyway, my DSLR is used just like a film camera.

He said “When you edit digital, you have four times as much footage to soft through than if you shot film”

He may be right about that, but if I’m editing something I shot myself, I can sift through the footage really fast. In fact some “bad” footage” might capture something I didn’t notice at first.

But of course, his business is selling film.. so of course he’s biased.
