Is something being lost with the emphasis on digital film production? My
argument is that there should not be a case of ‘is film going to die off?’ and
‘digital is the future!’. Instead, we should be thinking more along the lines of: is
the world of motion picture production ready for digital technology? Celluloid film
holds a physical connection to the process of making a motion picture due to the
fact it has ‘real’ elements. The lack of these tangible elements in the digital
process causes more problems than initially thought. Archiving motion pictures is
extremely important to the development of cultured societies around the globe.
However, the digital ‘revolution’ may well be the end of many motion pictures
before their life has begun after theatrical release.

This paper explores celluloid film and digital production through standing
theories, recent journal entries and test report data. Broken down into three
chapters, the first asks if the motion picture industry is ready for digital
technology. The second takes the case study of Steven Soderbergh to show
how the medium a motion picture is shot on should be considered as a means
to an end, and not one of a commercial benefit. The final chapter explores
reasons towards why film is currently the only logical medium for archiving.
