"From June 2006 to mid-March 2007 the 1st unit shot over two million feet of 35mm 3-perf, which saves about 20 percent over 4-perf. The 2nd unit features an aerial unit which shoots a day or so for every show, a stunt / action unit and an insert unit; they shoot even more 3- and 4- perf footage. We're never told we're shooting too much."

"Each episode takes about eight days for 1st unit with six or seven days spent at different locations for exteriors, interiors, days, nights. We couldn't shoot HD, with it's more labor intensive monitoring, working at the speed we do and with the high-caliber of actors we have. Film is the most forgiving format for us in terms of the continuity of look and dealing with the surprises we find in some locations. It's much easier to handle film in the color-correction process than HD."

That is a lot of film. I certainly won't be buying loads like that.
