Did you see the part about $50,000 for 1TB of space? Wow!
Ofcourse they are using a fast array for that, but that's a lot of
money for a couple of drives.

Digital is HERE!

If you guys want a real treat, rent Robert Rodriguez' DVD "Once Upon A Time In Mexico". His six featurettes are awesome. One is a ten minute lecture he gave at Sony's Cary Grant Theatre concerning his use of HD 24p, four fantastic behind the scenes featurettes about the movie's production and how easy it was for him to manipulate his images in order to add special effects (case in point: he showed how he digitally manipulated a gunfight scene where he added, in post, a bullet hole effect in a bad guy's forehead. Can you imagine how much money he saved doing it that way as opposed to actually squibbing the actor's forehead which looks cheesy as hell anyway? He also showed how he added machine gun muzzle flash effects in post when, during the early shots in production, Antonio Banderas had to use a non-firing rubber machine gun and "pretend" to be firing it by mouthing the machine gun noise. Rodriguez showed the before and after examples and I swear to you, I could not believe how real the muzzle flash looked when he added the effect in post. Amazing!) Plus, the DVD version shows the movie the way it was meant to be shown: In it's original HD 24p format. The picture is fabulous with no filmout fuzz. Give yourselves a treat and rent this DVD.
