  1. Bringing this thread back from the beyond but as anyone had film dailies processed at the NY Lab here? I see that obviously they've now processed high end projects like The Post, A Quiet Place, Succession, etc, but I'd like to know about the turnaround time for regular folks. It seems 2 to 3 days (!!!) turnaround in normal times depending on the workload, which is what it says on the rate sheet. I asked Tony Landano if it could be shorter during certain periods but didn't get an answer. Needless to say that it's far too long for me and a real bummer, so hopefully there's somehow a way to get it down to a day but maybe that's only for big productions?
  2. Christian Sprenger did it on Guava Island (shooting on the Alexa LF, there's an article on Filmmaker Magazine about it), the FUBU episode of Atlanta as well (where he shot in Super 16 mode on an Amira and then printed to film, scanned it). It looks unlike any digital film or footage that I've ever seen that tried somehow to make it look like film in post by adding grain or anything else. And it's not subtle at all, the results are really impressive. It obviously still looks different than something actually shot on film, but it's as close as it gets.
  3. Phenomenal work by Zack who shot it too. He shot practically the entire film on his Canon Dream Lens (50mm, 0.95). He said it was much more in focus than he expected. Also, another cool technical tidbit: Tig Notaro was not on set with any of the actors during principal photography. Another actor played the role and they ended up replacing him completely with Notaro who was shot separately against green screen over two weeks after the film was complete. Seamless. For people "complaining", it's such a different look than what we're used to and absolutely on purpose.
  4. For those who have an account over there, here's the teaser in QT 1080p and Pro Res quality ! https://www.movie-list.com/forum/showthread.php?36012-West-Side-Story-(2021)
  5. It's Spielberg, it's been his dream project for decades. It will be far more than "decent", lol.
  6. The film's amazing. Very pleasantly surprised to see many casual fans and non fans actually loving it too. Obviously, this is a completely different film, it's also broken down into chapters, so you can easily pause at one point and come back to it later but most people who don't plan to watch it in one full sitting end up watching it entirely. The 4 hours fly by. WB look like fools right now for butchering it in 2016. The 1.37 ratio works beautifully. I wasn't sure about it but yeah, it just works. Fabian Wagner's work is superb, Zack's eye remains one of the best out there. By the way, a little fun fact: the final two scenes were shot by Zack himself during additional photography. The first one he shot using his Red Monstro (which he used for Army of The Dead) and supposedly the Canon Dream Lens that has insane flares and shallow DOF (used on AOTD once again). He did a great job matching it to the 35mm film for the film itself.
  7. Yeah, I assumed that was the case earlier, no idea why considering McQuarrie clearly prefers film. Logistically simpler considering they"re shooting all over the globe?
  8. It might get an IMAX limited run, Zack has posted images of it being shown in IMAX where it of course looks massive and it's been teased. It's his choice, that's it. I would have chosen 1.66 or 1.85 for home video but he knows what he's doing.
  9. Just so we're clear, the theatrical cut of Justice League in 2017 contains practically none of Zack's original footage. It's that simple. This, as if the trailer released yesterday wasn't clear enough, is a COMPLETELY different film. And Tyler, Zack lost his daughter just when he was working on his cut back in the day. Warner Bros was of course meddling in the process as they often do these days, and he couldn't stay on, he had no energy left for the fight as he put it, and then WB brought in hack/predator Joss Whedon for "minimal reshoots" is what they called it back then and ended up reshooting most of it and throwing away all that delicious footage. So this is Zack's original vision fully restored, no compromises, and it's unprecedented. AT&T & Warner Media wanted the film to happen, so they made it happen.
  10. Yeah, it's what Zack wanted, it takes some getting used to. He posted some images of it being projected on a 1.43 IMAX screen and I imagine it's insane seen like that. I wish he had gone for 1.66 (back in March 2020, he said it would be 1.66, so he must have changed his mind) for the home video version, some folks won't understand why it's not filling their screens ^^ Millions of people are waiting for this and will gladly sit through a 4 hour film, the film will also have chapters like on a DVD or a Blu Ray, I guess to be able to watch a chunk of it and going back to it later if you need to. Looks incredible, cannot wait.
  11. Crap, I thought I had edited MI7 out. Yeah, it seems it's all digital for some reason.
  12. Film will be just fine. Killers of The Flower Moon is starting next month for a seven month shoot, David O.Russell's next one is shooting right now (probably on film). Paul Thomas Anderson shot his latest film a few months ago on 35mm as always. Patty Jenkins only shoots on film and she's got three huge films lined up: Rogue Squadron, Wonder Woman 3 and Cleopatra. I'm guessing/hoping that Indy 5 (directed by James Mangold) will be film too. No Time To Die is releasing (probably pushed back to Fall 2021), A Quiet Place Part 2 as well (film), Shyamalan's Old (he actually paid the extra himself to go back to film on this one), Death On The Nile, Last Night in Soho, Mission Impossible 7, The French Dispatch, West Side Story and so on. There are also obviously other films shooting that we don't know of, then all the directors currently shooting on film are going to continue to shoot on film.
