    Why?

    It is so refreshing to see work of this calibre. Such an impressive vision.

    And, on the subject of film vs digital, here is a superb doco on the evolution of digital in the motion picture industry:

    I think that oday (Sunday) may be the last day it is accessible.

    It was a most informed and informative discussion and Keanu Reeves was impressive with his knowledge and concern.

    I sent the link to a Brisbane friend who is currently shooting a short feature and is using the Arriflex Alexa. He was a devoted film guy up until the Alexa. he sent me some frames to look at and they are quite amazing.

    Glad you liked it.

    Cheers,
