An article published on The Guardian’s website discusses the current move from 35mm film stock to digital photography. With Skyfall being shot digitally, the article says:
Even that master of cinematography, Roger Deakins, is shooting Skyfall, the next Bond film, on Red’s rival, the Arri Alexa, according to the IMDb. If Deakins is doing it, surely digital’s a good thing?
The article goes on to discuss the pros and cons of digital versus film and how the loss of projectionists from cinemas means a vast wealth of knowledge is being lost from the industry.
