The director of a DV film I've been shooting asked me about this the other day and its been churning over in my mind.
Back in 2005, it sounded like a good idea - common sense if you like, now in 2007 I'm not really hearing of any benefits, if anything I'm hearing of projectionists comlaints that the systems regularly break down, which is a lot considering the're not used as much as first percieved.
As technology life gets shorter (mabye 5-6 years we can expect), was this a foolish mistake by the British Goverment and UK film council - after all that money could have been used to pay for film outs for digital films, blow-ups for super16mm films and extra prints for 35mm films - that way those films could have been shown on any screen of the 1000s of screens in the UK and also the world.
Let me know your thoughts and particularly your experiences on this matter.
