2017, Roll 11 – Million Dollar Bills

Before we start, I thought you might be interested in this. It’s a piece on why the results that we enjoy from film are not the same as shooting digital and then adding effects. It’s one of the best explanations of a subject that I’ve always found difficult to pin down. See what you think:…
