Did they switch from Super-16 this season?

As far as I know they did. I'm not sure exactly where I heard that though, so I could be wrong. But I distinctly remember hearing that they made the switch. I think it may have even been on this forum.

Are you referring to this past season or the upcoming one?

I was referring to this past season.  Don't know about the upcoming one.

 

 

In that case, it definitely looks like Super-16 is the predominant format. But, to be fair, I haven't read anything about how the show is shot since it first came on.

Well, I don't believe they are shooting two different formats. They shot super 16 originally, and then switched to HD....or at least that's what I heard. I rarely see the show, so I can't comment on whether it looks like HD or film.

I watched an episode last night and it did look a lot less grainy than Super-16 normally would. Much cleaner than the original look.

 

So I really don't know what they're shooting. Maybe we should just read the article and believe Rohn Schmidt. :)

Seems like it.  Maybe my mind is playing tricks on me. :blink:

 

Maybe not.

 

The episodes I've been watching are from two seasons ago. Very little grain. They look like they could definitely be either 35mm or HD.

 

Maybe Schmidt played with a different format, then switched back to Super-16.
