Christopher Nolan, what a man. From the lowest budgets to some of the biggest in the world.

:clap: :clap: I'm 'dissecting' the film, scene by scene, for a project of mine. An amazing experience so far to see wqhat one can do without a budget.

He shot it on an Arriflex 16BL and some other 16mm Bolex camera. Very impressive work indeed. I plan on shooting an extremely low budget 16mm film myself.

I heard that Aronofsky shot "Pi" on 16mm tri-ex REVERSAL film stock, which means there's no negative -- you're stuck with that one copy of the film, so if it scratches or tears, you're screwed. But the grainy look of that reversal stock looks better than the negative stock, thus the film looks great.

Let's hope more filmmakers listen to Nolan's call to use film, not digital. And not just the big Hollywood filmmakers, but indie directors, too.
