I heard someone mention on the list recently that Kodak has made more
16mm this year than ever before. I was a little mystified by this
statement. Then yesterday I heard a union camera assistant saying that
more and more DPs in the industry are turning towards 16mm film, as
it's cheaper to shoot than HD, and a lot of them are starting to think
that it also looks better. (!)
