Keanu Reeves: the future of cinema

Why I made a documentary about the differences - and affinities - between digital and celluloid

"Whoa."

An excerpt:

"For some film-makers picking digital is an aesthetic, as well as a practical, choice. Directors such as Robert Rodriguez and Steven Soderbergh told me they had an ambition for a certain look and realised that only digital cameras could achieve it. Digital has also democratised the film-making process. The availability of cheap, high-quality video has helped increase the quality of low budget film-making (this is certainly true of the expansion in documentary film-making, where digital has enabled people to hit the streets with an affordable means of filming). Where we watch our films is also part of the digital story. Movies are now streamed from the cloud, watched on iPads. They're no longer always shown on the big screen."
