The ‘privacy glass’ of the digital age
31:23 Video: How digital cinema works in the future: The ‘screen to glass’ experiment Posted June 13, 2018 08:02:49Digital cinema has changed the way we consume and view films.
We are now immersed in digital content, where we can easily and quickly download movies and TV shows without needing to watch a filmstrip or pay a subscription.
But for film makers, the transition to digital means that we have to change the way our films are made and produced.
In a new study, University of Technology Sydney’s Dr Helen Kippers found that the majority of film production companies are in the process of converting to digital, but there are some major hurdles to overcome.
Key points:A film can only be screened for one year from start to finish.
“The biggest issue is getting a film ready for release,” Dr Helen said.
“You have to do the processing and then the film is still in the production.”
This is what makes digital cinema different.
You can get a film made on the spot.
“Dr Helen said the research showed that most of the companies in the industry were already moving to digital film production, and were now working with a number of film schools to find the right skills and equipment to meet the demands of this rapidly evolving technology.”
It is really a question of technology and the way that it works,” she said.
The study also found that companies had found a way to keep the old production process and production processes going, even if the technology was now being used to produce films digitally.”
When you have a film in production, you have to find out if it can be made digitally, and there is no standard for that, so you have this constant struggle between the two,” she told ABC Radio Melbourne.”
So the film needs to be made to a standard that is well beyond what is achievable in the film industry today.
“If you don’t have the tools or equipment, then you need to go to a film school, which will do the job for you.”
And you need that time to process the film, because the film does not come out as a finished film.
“Digital cinema is being embraced across Australia, with digital film schools being established across the country.
Dr Helen Kuppers said it was important to have a clear understanding of the film making process in order to be able to make the best decision.”
What you will need is a good understanding of film and how it works, and what you can get out of it, as well as what you don´t get out,” she explained.”
That way, you will be able make the right decision.
