Amitabh Bachchan recently announced that famed Hollywood Filmmaker Christopher Nolan will be visiting India soon. He wrote on his blog, http://srbachchan.tumblr.com/, that Nolan is coming to India for a special occasion, to lend support for Kodak who are trying to bring back films into fashion.
Bachchan wrote, "GOD .. though is keen to help the film world .. film .. the commodity which gave for the years and years of the existence of cinema its most valued raw stock, is making a comeback .. it kind of defeats my earlier observation when I said why the Industry is called the Film Industry, when the use of film is no longer there .. it is all digital .. BUT NO ..
It is all about to change yet again .. KODAK that largest name for film is coming back .. many in the world of direction and production are finding values in the product done on film to be the more liked subject .. so like ‘DUNKIRK’ the film by that renowned Christopher Nolan uses only film for his pictures .. DUNKIRK was not digital it was film .. and in a month or so the man himself Mr Nolan is coming to India to inaugurate or at least lend support to a few matters .. Firstly the archival of films their repairs and preservation .. and secondly to support the Kodak world all over again .. I believe that Los Angeles, Hollywood is already all back to film again .. they say the quality and feel and colour of film is unmatched .. so what happens to digital .. it shall exist it shall coexist and film shot on celluloid shall be sent to the Lab for its development, but all post production work shall be digital .. I mean what kind of times are we living in.. ?"
Do you agree with Bachchan and Christopher Nolan that we should shift back to films again from being digital?
