Weird economy. Kodak bankrupt, Polaroid gone, & company that copies what they do virtually worth $1 billion. Is film dead or has it everted?

@somebadideas Of the three, only one wasn't overtly military-industrial. Makes ya wonder where the new wars are.

One thing I am noticing is that with the loss of film stocks there's been flattening of looks in digital cinematography. Similar base look.

@maxfenton apologies, I don't follow? Kodak & Polaroid military industrial?

Still slightly skeptical of New Aesthetic but get it; there has to be a reactionary kick to the fetishization of antiquity, embrace of now.

@somebadideas Absolutely! inert-ord.net/usa03a/usa3/t1… warrelics.eu/forum/aviation… — I mean, demise of their consumer end reflects management issues.

Paradoxically, digital cinematography best at low lit natural landscapes. Compression algorithms don't do enough alchemy to human faces yet.

RT @Juniper_girl IMAX is the best hope for film. [Yes, & no. Not right for all films. But woefully underused & audiences prefer to 3d]

@somebadideas All I mean is: Polaroid gave *someone* 3D imaging of pacific islands. Instagram gives *someone* lateral view of a battlefield.

I truly believe the popularity of instagram is not about faux authenticity but the imperfections of our memories & need to abstract them.

Watching ballet documentary as the NyQuil kicks in, I'm reminded that the dancers who'll never break out of the corps strive for perfection…

The ones who'll dance leads are after something else: life, intelligence, animation. Brilliant technique, too, but that's not the endpoint.

(But then, isn't that part of existential struggle, to wonder about the authenticity of our memories, more than fashion)?

But of course, you have to have all that grueling technique soaked into your bones before you do the other.

Given all that, the astonishing thing isn't that each generation produces only a handful of genuine stars, but that we even get that many.

(I believe the medium that most resembles the experience of memory is still photography. Films most like the domain of dreams.)

Documentary films, funnily enough, mostly don't remind me of memories at all.
