This is among the deepest dives into movie pictures and the creating course of I’ve seen. Not surprisingly, it’s from Destin at Smarter Every Day. He says that he went seeking to discover a definitive video that defined all of it and he couldn’t discover one. So, he made one.
Destin begins by speaking of the “magic” of movie and the distinctive look and character it has that’s unimaginable to breed digitally. He additionally mentions movie’s resurgence of late (I assume it’s mainstream now – the hipsters shall be upset). However it’s not magic. There’s precise science behind it and Destin takes us to go to Indie Film Lab to see how the method works.
I shoot each digital and movie, though not as a lot as I’d like with the latter over the past couple of years. I have a tendency to stay with movie only for black and whites, although. For color, I’m proud of digital, however black and white movie has a glance and a tone (notably Ilford FP4+) and a personality that I’ve simply by no means been in a position to recreate in digital, nor have I seen anyone else convincingly replicate it.
Once I do shoot movie, although, I develop it myself. I’ve but to attempt creating my very own C41 or E6, however black and white may be very easy to do at dwelling with minimal equipment. It’s all the time enjoyable to see the way it works in a processing lab, although, particularly over the past couple of a long time as movie died off and began to return again and labs have needed to evolve with each occasions.
A really attention-grabbing and satisfying video to look at.
