I bet he knows more about this than a kid/teenager on the internet. I trust that people like P.T Anderson, Quentin Tarantino, Christopher Nolan, Sofia Coppola and Joe Wright know what their doing. And he's so right that people are striving way to hard to push technology (Fincher and Lucas, I'm looking at your ugly looking films) for no other reason than being on the forefront.
Deakins is a genius but his newer digital work isn't even comparable to his older work. I cannot understand why a DP of his caliber shoots with low shutter speed. The ugly motion blur is so apparent in the Skyfall teaser
Crazy Eight wrote:As for Nolan's comment about digital projection- even a 2K digital projector will offer a better image than 90% of 35mm projected images. Why? No scratches, dirt, shutter, deterioration, and the films master file has one less step to go through. Even when the film doesn't have a DI, the films master print still has to be scanned digitally and then re-printed on film stock for distribution. During the process, resolution and color accuracy is diminished greatly. This is a well documented fact. Whereas with digital systems, the re-printing step is eliminated, thus giving the viewer a much purer viewing of the film. With the newish 4K projectors, which are being rolled out quickly, the resolution argument for film dies. In the end you're left with no objective advantage to seeing a film on 35mm stock, aside from nostalgia.
