There is technical art, Moviematric is a privilege for filmmakers—their art stands on the shoulders of the industrial giants who made it possible to capture motion on film and video—as well as a formidable challenge. The greatest directors are more than artists. They are also technical innovators who advance the tools of the medium and sometimes, even discover or invent new ones. If every new invention begins as a miracle, turns into a necessity, and ends as a vice, then the art of filmmaking is in the recovery of its miraculous aspect. In recent years, great movies have been made with a variety of equipment, including consumer-grade video cameras, toy cameras, iPhones, and even footage taken from the Internet. But whether a film is made with Hollywood’s grandest equipment or with ordinary equipment, there’s nothing wrong with a great cinematic image. As cinematographer Caroline Champetier said in a recent interview, “A beautiful shot is always born.”
The artistry of modern technology has been a constant since the beginning of movies, and the history of art has always moved along with technological inventions as well as the creativity of filmmakers in finding uses for these advances. It’s a topic that my colleague Casey da Costa (now a writer at Medium) and I have discussed at length between coffee machines and screenings, and we’ve had that conversation in front of all three video cameras. – where the simple fact of being able to operate the cameras, without having to interrupt the discussion to change the film reels (as was done before the age of video) changes the nature of the conversation in ways that We are still calculating. Along with those changes and other such things—including the development of sound films, portable tape recorders, Steadicams, small high-definition-video cameras, and Internet streaming—that Casey and I discuss here, the Great Guide Cars are being met and investigated. . transformed into wonderful and wonderful elements of the art of our time and of our own.
Cinema isn’t something we think about as consumers, but that’s why we still have Ben-Hur and the Star Wars trilogy on repeat. The film will crumble and get damaged over time and is also highly flammable. There are many ways for the film to end its usefulness. Digital movies can be stored on company servers without taking up too much space. Its maintenance costs are also lower than film storage and remastering costs.
Digital files are also easier to back up and restore. Pixar had a famous incident while making Toy Story 2, where one lost almost the entire movie they were working on due to a bad backup. Aside from this minor glitch, the backup system has given production companies access to earlier versions of the film, as well as being used for diaries and extras, a way to store shots. Without technology, it would be nearly impossible for Hollywood to produce the volume of movies that it is. Film might be a good idea for that vintage feel, but the advent of digital has largely put an end to the film vs. digital debate.
