To Aaron,
For somebody that boasts about keeping up to date on the cutting edge and what is going on. What you seem to fail to realize is that the demise of film has been an ongoing conversation for a very long time now. You are not presenting us with anything that we don't already know or are aware of. This has been a subject that has been at the front of just about everything "film" for the better part of a decade now, if not since the advent of video and digital imaging technologies. Stop writing like we have no idea that this is going on and that you are some kind of Nostradamus and we are just ignorantly diddling around while the walls are about to cave in on us.
Just because your expertise will soon be outsourced and replaced by a robot or computer, and this will happen. Doesn't give you the right to come rain "truth bombs" on our community. Go back to designing the very things that will make you obsolete. In the meantime we'll keep enjoying making films and wait to piss in your face someday.
Get a fucking life,
Adam Paradis

I'm sorry, is there something wrong with playing the fiddle while Rome
burns? You've got your fire-resistant vest and you're happy. Some people are
choosing similar options and others are choosing to keep fiddling. We like
the warmth, but its awfully hard to finish our tunes when you keep aiming
the damn fire-hose at us.
