    It's completely a personal choice, and most people of our generation prefer film. But I doubt too many people born in the last ten years will.

    I think it really depends on the DP and what it is you are shooting.

    In the end, I think this is best for production. People who could never dream of making their ideas happen because of costs now can spend $10,000 and make it happen. While it will certainly lead to a bunch of absolute trash, we will never see that stuff. But we will also get to see a bunch of great things that we never would have had a chance to see before.

    I am curious though, what is it that you like from film that you can't get from digital (high end digital - RED/Alexa types, not lower end DSLR types)? What advantage do you see with film?

    I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.

    Like any other business, you need to be able to adapt or go out of business. In that article they talk about how it may cost them $75,000 to upgrade. Sure, that seems like an awful lot of money for a small business, but it is also an upgrade that is going to last you for 10+ years. If you can't talk lendors into a loan like that, then your business wasn't very viable in the first place.

    I believe the Holiday Drive In in Hamilton has recently gone digital.
    The Rally Onion wants 150 fans before Opening Day.

    Our local theater is doing a kickstarter to fund the digital projector 3+ days to go. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/...-elder-theatre

    This is to raise the last $25k to get it done. They are going to spend $63k total if this gets done.

    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    Doing it the right way too. Great idea and I bet it gets funded. They are basically just selling advanced tickets in order to get a loan. Great business strategy.

    They seem to have made it! A very small rural town was able to save their theater. The Kickstarter site allows you to click on a link to see who the backers are and there are many local people, and then there are people from all over the country and even the world with a guy from Dubai! Pretty cool stuff.
