Wheeler Winston Dixon

University Press of Kentucky

It is an inescapable fact that we will soon experience a complete changeover to digital formatting, eschewing film entirely, many audience members were deeply disturbed by the thought, as if, in losing the platform of film, they were losing some essential essence of the medium. The shift to a digital cinema will not be without controversy. Film comes with one set of values inherently present in the stock itself (a tendency towards warmth in color for some film stocks, or towards cooler hues in others, as well as characteristics of grain, depth, and definition which are unique to each individual film matrix), while the digital video image offers another entirely different set of characteristics, verging on a hyperreal glossiness that seems to shimmer on the screen.
