I was watching the BBC Dracula with The Beard tonight, and realized something very important: I simply can’t forgive video. I love film. It seems to me that it is a virtual impossibility to create tone on video… anything shot on video has only one tone: shot on video.
And the problem, I realized is this:
Film has the capacity to bring us the universe in all its vastness, and video shows us a landscape as seen through a box.
