Many filmmakers might argue that the film vs. digital debate is dead in the water and that digital has finally won out for good. But many of the major releases in 2017 were actually shot entirely, or at least partially, on film, including Wonder Woman, The Post, Justice League, Phantom Thread, The Florida Project and I, Tonya.
Join Memphis film-making pioneer Mike McCarthy in a discussion about his own experiences shooting on film, why a filmmaker in 2018 might choose to shoot on film, and where to find resources to do so.
Mike McCarthy is an artist, musician, writer, filmmaker, and Memphian by way of Tupelo, Mississippi.
