About that Vimeo page...
But that been the problem with most of the Digital "artists" since the 80s.
They talk the talk but they do not walk the walk. Like those guys I saw near
the ST. Mark's cube one evening back in 1997, they had rigged an early
webcam into a minitaure motorized rig that looked a lot like Snow's La
Region Central machine. When I approached them and tried talking to them
about Snow and his film they just looked at me like children caught with
their web browser (Netscape most likely) in the cookie jar... It was obvious
they did not know one byte about experimental cinema or its history, they
thought they were inventing the wheel or something.
No culture at all. Those Whole Earth guys should have used as a motto
"Access to tools-
and their historic/cultural background"

About the whole end of Kodak issue I believe that if I was a producer of a
big budget film I would make sure to end with a negative and good print
elements. It would be a pity to spend $100 million US and find out ten years
later that your movie has sunk down a file sinkhole,
like what happened to NASA a few years back.
