Side by Side: The Science, Art, and Impact of Digital Cinema

.

Movies were shot, edited and projected using photochemical film. But over the last two decades a digital process has emerged to challenge photochemical filmmaking. SIDE BY SIDE, produced by Keanu Reeves, takes an in-depth look at this revolution. Through interviews with directors, cinematographers, film students, producers, technologies, editors, and exhibitors, it examines all aspects of filmmaking — from capture to edit, visual effects to color correction, distribution to archiving. At this moment when digital and photochemical filmmaking coexist, it explores what has been gained, what is lost, and what the future might bring.

Press

  • Film4
    Essential viewing for understanding different sides of one of the most vital current debates in cinema.
  • Arizona Republic
    It's this simple: If you like movies, you need to see "Side by Side."
  • Christian Science Monitor
    There is great flux in this world, as Side by Side so entertainingly demonstrates, and where it's all headed is both discomforting and exhilarating. Stay tuned.
  • Birmingham Post
    Side By Side is a riveting, under-the-hood distillation of 100 years of Hollywood experimentation, innovation and expensive bravery.
  • Guardian Observer
    It asks questions about culture and technology, the creation of a new sensibility, and whether we're looking at the debasement of values or a new democracy coming to the arts.
