Over the course of the last several years, the film industry has undergone a multitude of dramatic changes. From the way audiences access movies to the way filmmakers shoot them, the art and business of film is evolving at a shockingly swift rate. In this illuminating documentary, producer Keanu Reeves interviews many of the most innovative game-changers in the world of cinema to examine how the digital age has transformed the movies. James Cameron, Martin Scorsese, Christopher Nolan, and Andy and Lana Wachowski are just a few of the filmmakers who share their insights in this thoroughly engaging documentary about the future of film.
Packed with captivating interviews as well as footage from some of the groundbreaking films of recent years, director Christopher Kenneally has crafted a comprehensive look at the realities of making movies in the 21st century. Still, Kenneally’s film is much more than just a lesson on filmmaking. This is a passionate and joyful celebration of why we go to the movies, and why so many people dedicate their lives to making them. –William Goldberg
A pretty decent doco on the transition from celluloid to digital acquisition and projection. Keanu Reeves does the interviewing here and keeps things on track, energetic and off the cuff. It's refreshing to hear some of the film industry's pioneering directors and cinematographers speak openly and with candour. Nothing really new for me but nice to see it presented in a concise and linear fashion. 3 stars
A good doc for someone unfamiliar with the technological history of filmmaking from 35mm film, colour timing, analog editing and visual effects to their now digital counterparts. I've personally always thought that digital versus film debate was kind of unnecessary as they are both tools to help you tell your story.
