What do you think this says about the current and future state of the super 16 format?

Aww, you guys...
And anything shot on film is being transferred to 4K and burned?

I think one might as well ask if Bigelow's achievement will boost Eterna sales, entice "suits" to engage with small budget projects, be less gender unaware, will make Arri re-think their Alexa strategy and entice JP Beauviala to launch that Aaton Super 8 camera after all...
Don't think so on all accounts, but it will be used as a reference by many (and hopefully substantiated by some) that with luck, determination, an artistic vision and technical skills, you can create whatever you damn well on any format, and bring it successfully through the pipeline.
Last one was Leaving Las Vegas, 1995. At that time, with less forgiving EXR filmstock (how cine-film evolved since then... wow) and the all-35 format monopoly, I think that was a bigger achievement to win, format-wise, I mean. Today, the plethora of available formats and their applications might actually make it easier for S16 et al.

4K isn't overkill for 35mm, but 6K 8K definitely are. Unless you're talking about 35mm scope, 6K is like burning money on the lawn.
