Film is dead

September 30th, 2005 by Seb Chan

I’m quite taken by the forcefulness with which Robert Rodriguez (maker of Sin City, Once upon a time in Mexico) declares that film is dead.

“People ask if I would go back to shooting film. I say, ā€œIā€™m driving a Ferrari ā€” why would I go back to a horse and buggy?ā€ Artists are usually technology-averse, although there are some who are pioneers, cutting-edge people. The movie industry is still shooting film, but everyone else is shooting digital.”

His Ten Minute Film School is great.
