I feel a lot more fondness for films stocks of old from the 50s,60's than modern film stocks. which look beautiful in their own way but don't have the same emotional quality for me at least. I wish I could shoot on film stocks from those time periods. I'd recreate those looks if I thought it was possible using digital tools but I'm not sure it is. Film is great if you can afford it. I would never bash it. red is fantastic too although has room to improve dynamic range wise. we're moving into an era of digital projection and we're about to be spoiled for quality given how poorly film projectors are setup at most theaters. the less people use film the more expensive its going to get. maybe in 10 years only spielberg will be able to afford to shoot film. I'd hate for it to die completely. for the next few years its what we're trying to measure up to. we're still not there yet.
