  1. True, true. One cannot even say “taping” now, as many cameras don’t use tape.

    I still prefer to use “shooting”, as violent as it sounds it is always the correct term.

    Also, in all seriousness, I wish these folks luck. Shooting outdoors in Asheville is a sound nightmare. Beautiful visuals, terrible wind noise.

    But is the end product a film, especially if it is transferred to 35mm and released in that format? And since nearly all movies are at some point turned into digital form and then turned into a 35mm print no matter what they were shot on, why wouldn’t it?

    How about ‘capturing and storing light, digitally’?

    I guess we’ve finally reached the point where anyone with a digital camera can now get away with calling themselves a filmmaker and producer for their own filmmaking company. So sad for the truly skilled and trained photographers and producers that they are now heaped in with an ever growing glut of self annoited professional “filmmakers”, “directors” and “artists”.

    Why? What makes one ‘truly’ skilled? What is the litmus test in your opinion?A degree? Expensive schools?

    The proof will lie or not in the results of what they come up with. That’s as it should be. I’ve seen no actual connection between “trained” filmmakers and quality work.
