I remember the “Digital Filmmakers Symposium” we put on with the American Film Institute in the dawn of digital filmmaking, about 12 years ago. There was such resistance amongst some attendees about digital! Now, few people think twice about it.
“A recent report from IHS Screen Digest, a company that analyzes trends in digital media, says that movie studios will cease producing 35 mm film prints for major markets by the end of 2013 (the US, France, the UK, Japan, and Australia are considered “major markets”). IHS predicts studios will stop producing film for the rest of the world by 2015.”
