Kodak havde ellers annonceret, at de ikke længere ville producere råfilm - deres salg er faldet med 96% (!) over de seneste ti år.
Men der er stadig en række prominente instruktører, der sværger til film, bl.a. Spielberg, Tarantino og Abrams (der optager Star Wars VII på gammeldags film). Apatow, Nolan og Scorsese har nu sluttet sig til koret af protesterende, og de har fået overtalt Kodak til at fortsætte produktionen:
"The negotiations—secret until now—are expected to result in an arrangement where studios promise to buy a set quantity of film for the next several years, even though most movies and television shows these days are shot on digital video... With the exit of competitor Fujifilm Corp. last year, Kodak is the only major company left producing motion-picture film." [kilde
Scorsese udtaler: "[Cameras shooting digital HD] are lighter, it’s much easier to shoot at night, we have many more means at our disposal for altering and perfecting our images. And, the cameras are more affordable: films really can be made now for very little money. Even those of us still shooting on film finish in HD, and our movies are projected in HD.” What’s more, film “is cumbersome and imperfect and difficult to transport and prone to wear and decay.”
Still, “Film, even now, offers a richer visual palette than HD.” It’s also “still the best and only time-proven way to preserve movies. We have no assurance that digital informaton will last, but we know that film will, if properly stored and cared for. Our industry – our filmmakers – rallied behind Kodak because we knew that we couldn’t afford to lose them, the way we’ve lost so many other film stocks. This news is a positive step towards preserving film, the art form we love.” [kilde
Så.... godt nyt!
