This film takes on the complexity of the former celluloid film making versus the new wave of digital film making. Can we use both forms of mediums to create stories, or do we have to simply adapt to the new, easier process of making films? This documentary explores all aspects of the two approaches to film making, from in front of the camera to behind it. The producers do seem to have a bias towards digital film making, while still highlighting the benefits of the celluloid process. It offers a great discussion on the pros and cons to each and worth a watch.
