HD vs. 16mm in a business/reel perspective
Posted 19 May 2005 - 10:16 PM
A friend of mine is in preproduction for a short film. He's worked out a deal to shoot it HD and I'm trying to convince him to shoot it 16mm instead, mainly because I want the experience. What do you guys think the business advantages are to either format? I mean would having a 16mm project under your belt be better for a demo reel and/or resume than HD? These guys are interested in feature films and not so much commercial or client work. Money and aesthetics aside, what do you guys think? Is it that big a deal or not?

Also, a reel is not "a reel".
I think that, as you progress in the industry, and with the advent of tools like final cut you can come up with tailor made reels for specific targets.
