There has been a reviving interest in analogue formats in the film industry.
Like the new founded interest in vinyl, both experienced and emerging filmmakers are embracing the look and feel of celluloid. Big budget films like Star Wars, the James Bond franchise, The French Dispatch, and many others are still shooting on 35mm film.
Even with its popularity, film is still a cumbersome medium that digital is
phasing out.
Film is both expensive and hard to process, the advent of digital technologies has made sets much more efficient. The disciplined practice of shooting on film is sought after though, filmmakers tend to be much more careful and precise with their shots working on 35mm.
Access formats at any level.
Our research suggests that to ensure the continued success of analog formats we must target and engage the interest of the future filmmaking community.
