What do the movies November, 28 Days later, Open Water and Murderball all have in common? They were all shot in DV and had theatrical releases.
That’s right, S-freakin’-D projected on the big screen for all to see! One of them, November, actually won Best Cinematography at Sundance.
From Canon’s T2i to Sony’s EX-1 to RED’s EPIC there is almost a glut of cameras across the whole spectrum. It looks like a filmmaker’s wet dream yet some people aren’t happy. The T2i doesn’t have good enough specs, the EX-1 doesn’t have interchangeable lenses and the EPIC is too expensive… Really? Cameras are dropping like manna from heaven yet some people only see a few reasons why they can’t use a specific camera instead of all the reasons why they can.
I guess that is the difference between the people that want to make films and the people that make films.
