Digital Revolution

The world is changing every day and one industry whose changes are the most debated are the film industry’s. Film is almost dead. The celluloid days are almost over, with cameras like the RED taking over and producing superior pictures. But with digital filmmaking becoming more popular, there is the question of will film go away completely?
The answer: No
There will always be some art student, some indy film studio, someone out there who will make film movies. Film was part of our culture for 100 years and it’s never going to leave completely, just like how the vhs isn’t completely gone or the record. Nothing disappears completely if someone is there to remember it.
Next question: Well if digital filmmaking is so cheap and everyone can do it, won’t the market be flooded with mediocre material and good films will be hard to find?
Wrong
why?
Because of a question that I’ve seen in a different community
“Is internet reviewing dying?”
Since youtube there have been people who review and make fun of bad movies. However, some people speculate that the combination of lackluster material from the big guns and the swelling in the “market” of amateur reviewers with poor quality, the “industry” will begin to die.
Wrong, wrong, wrong
Because those people remain ignorant of the fact that there are more and more films coming out every year. More and more movies that people need to know if they’re worth watching. The day needs to come when you can type in “Insert film here review” and find a review that will inform you to watch or not watch a video. That’s why they have comments on netflix, that’s why rottentomatoes is popular. People need to know and if we can build awareness that “Hey! There are these people who can tell how good a film is in an entertaining way!” then we can have a self-maintaining market.
Film is evolving into well-oiled machine, with people making, putting out, critiquing, and watching movies with ease.
I have hope for the future, and I can’t wait to be a part of it.
