    1.) it's cheaper than every before because of digital cameras ( where you can shoot with BM cameras) incorporating film footage with bm footage
    2>) in the digital world of distribution projects shot on kodak really stand out

    I absolutely agree with you. The analogic colors stills rocks, it is a "bonus" when your film is in a competion. However, can you tell us more about your idea of "synergy"between BM and analog world?

    It's from a few years ago, but this is pretty interesting...

    https://petapixel.com/2014/12/18/com...-film-digital/

    The thing is...it seems to me that film has STILL to this day an advantage over colour gamut and sometimes in resolution and dynamic range, even after no one has been developing newer film stock technologies for maybe 10 years.

    The limiting factor is actually the ability to GET or SCAN that information from the negative / film itself, not that it's not captured in the original film.

    Has anyone seen the great Ron Howard doco film 8 days a week ? http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2531318/

    What's wonderful about seeing this film is the BREATHTAKING concert footage that was loveling re-scanned and transferred. Not exactly restored, just re- scanned (i'm guessing ) on a nice 4K scanner. And it was astonishingly good. The film essentially looked BETTER than what it did when it was originally shot because display and scanning technology has only gotten better. That's the hidden magic of film.

    Do you think anyone re-scanning on one of the first the first DI finished Films Oh Brother Where Art Thou http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0190590/ will find that their 2K DI master will look any better ? It will only only be as good as that 2K DI master was. It won't get any better. It won't suddenly be 4K. UNless MAYBE they go back and re-scan the camera originals, which would mean they would have had to kept the original film negative AND conform that into an edit, and of course there's the unique grade that would have to be re-applied with R. Deakins involvement to be credible.

    It just doesn't wash for me, but it's also too late really.
