Also, don't forget that a significant percentage (probably more than 50%) of prime-time television is shot on film, as are many national TV ad campaigns.

Have fun.

Regarding TV shows and film, we bought one of the Mitchell BNCR's that was used by Paramount as a studio camera this past year. Got an INCREDIBLE deal... about what you would spend on a full MiniDV cam setup. So we are shooting our short on 35mm this coming month. It's an old warhorse of a camera that was fully overhauled before we bought it. You can stand with your ear ned\xt to it and not hear a thing when its running. Huge monster, weighs a ton, but EGADS what beautiful images! Nothing like looking at your film test projected on a screen!

Don't forget to talk to the Kodak indie film rep. I've heard she can get you MUCH better film pricing than the standard rates.
I think I might have her name and number around somewhere if you need it.

Also, at a seminar presented by George Spiro Dibie (President International Cinematographers Guild and cinematorapher for projects like "Barney Miller", "Murphy Brown", "Growing Pains" and much much more) he shared a really cool hint on "practicing" with film. He said that many times, motion film is available for 35mm SLR cameras! So you can buy a few rolls and practice with lighting and lensing and such using just an SLR photo camera, have it developed and see the results with very little expense.

Good luck with the project!
Have fun.

If you take a look at Eastman Kodak's stock chart it might give you an idea of where this trend is heading...

Stock prices don't reflect trends all the time. Kodak, last year, sold more motion picture film than ever before.

The sell off is partly to blame on Kodak's decision to move into digital and investors did not feel they addressed their concerns properly.
