Well I was hoping we'd avoid THAT barfight again; this isn't really a
film v digital argument per se in the sense that David responded...

But really Alain, tying digital motion pictures to television makes no
more sense than binding pure film to Hollywood,Bollywood, or narrative
arcs.... well maybe that's what youstart to say but why would that in
itself make you "hate video / digital filmmaking " ? You make the
association you seem to have rejected in the previous sentence !!

(and as far as I'm concerned, the further 'digital filmmaking goes
from video the better)

I should keep quiet,now, but I like working in digital as much as I
ever did with film, like any passion it has its frustrations, so does
celluloid, but really it's a young medium, it'll get where it needs to
be but that will happen more by engaging it...

Art Departments never were that friendly were they ? Maybe that will
change (cd be for the better..)
