Point taken. Thanks for clearing this up for me. I think Fred is right too that celluloid film and analog video got grouped together as use of digital video was on the rise. I do think it's important to keep a separate category for celluloid film--whatever you call it, 'analog' film, celluloid, emulsion-based film, photo-chemical film, etc--rather than create only two groups: 'analog' vs. 'digital.' In that case the unique qualities of emulsion-based film gets buried under a generalized term and I think, as it becomes a less available--as this discussion has abundantly made clear--it is important to think historically as we develop our vocabulary of the changing moving image.
