Oh lol i will take it (highfive)
From what I have read, to the professionals that is not necessarily true anymore. Digital always had practical advantages and definitely has archival and distribution advantages over film. Some big directors like Nolan and Tarantino only shoot on film. Others don't. Digital allows you to instantly see what you are doing, you don't get any issues with developing or a lab screwing up your print. According to cinematographers in the Industry cinematographers weigh in on film vs. digital article it comes down to a matter of taste and what you are used to.
Come on mate. Even you must know film is a much better medium to shoot on than digital? How do you explain the shear beauty of IMAX shots compared to other footage? Film is far superior to digital that’s why old movies that have been looked after will produce amazing 4k material. As for why new movies sell more? Because they are new and have wider general audience. Old movies have a niche set of viewers who will buy that movie because they love it, the rest of the general audience will just watch it when it’s shown on tv.
They just are not a film fan I guess. My head hurt trying to explain to them as well. Blade Runner is one of the best 4k films I have seen. Well worth the price and I already own 3 other versions.
Does anyone else agree?,KitKat there are still old films that look good e.g blade runner 4k and that still seems to be fairly popular for its age and it looks great too so I don't know why he's arguing saying there's no point for old films!there is a big market for older classics to be remastered for 4k!there are some that everybody loves to watch over and over
