HD Filmmaking is the future
I'd like to put down a contribution from Mr Suresh in the "Orkut community" on Digital Filmmaking. The topic of discussion was - Digital Filmmaking is the future. I liked what Mr Suresh contributed and here I am putting it down for you to read:
"Hi, saw this interesting discussion and wanted to contribute. Just worked on HD for a full length feature film in Malayalam - Abraham&Lincoln - released on 22nd, reportedly running to packed houses still. It was shot on HD and HDV (progressive frame) and then reverse telecined onto film. Atleast 50% of the so-called seasoned experts failed to realize that it was shot on HDV, which I feel is a big big victory. Progressive frame is great, interlaced though is yet to catch up. The movie is also a first in HD in cinemascope.
Qube and UFO are there too for projection, which further brings down the overall film production budget. The clarity is also superior to film (as reverse telecined) as one level of generation loss is avoided totally.
HDV Progressive IS THE FUTURE."
If professionals couldn't recognise the difference between digital and film - then ye low budget indiers have a bright future for sure!
