Digitally Acquired Theatrical and High Profile Television Productions in 2008

We have again sought to chronicle the year in Digital Acquisition, and although the following lists are not as comprehensive as we would have liked, we hope it helps to give a sense of trends in our industry. Since so many Indie Features and television programs are now digitally acquired, we have chosen to list only features bound for theatrical release, as well as some of the higher profile narrative television productions. We are also listing all Live Action 3-D features we are aware of, whether or not they are shot on digital formats. We have tried to list the Title, Director, Cinematographer, Format, (camera/recording system), and Stereographer for 3-D.

Even though we don't list TV Pilots, we are aware of a tremendous upsurge in those being shot with Digital Cinema cameras. This may be at least partially attributable to the SAG contract impasse, and the fact that shows that are acquired digitally can fall under AFTRA jurisdiction. Should SAG go out on strike, and a show's actors have been previously organized under an AFTRA contract, (even if they are also members of SAG), they are not required to go out on strike.

Please excuse any errors and omissions; we know there must still be a few. Please visit our DCS Forums page, "Major Digital Productions", to make any additions or addendums, so that we can keep an updated and accurate list.

The following catagories are listed alphabetically by manufacturers or formats, and the productions by their titles:
