I was thinking about this while watching the Aviator (kind of ironic, given the pains they went through to match the 'technicolor' look) that digital will greatly help with movie archive. I was watching with commentary by scorsese (sp?) and he mentioned a film that was formative for him, but sadly is a lost film. And it hit me what that meant. Film is a legacy of a generation. Our outlook on values, way of life, even politics are contained in our narritive and documentary forms. We need to keep them arround, and not jsut for 100 years that film might get us. We cant expect to pay huge fees to have our films taken care of forever. They need to be on a more permanent format. once they enter the digital world it really doenst matter what kind of disc its on. Most likley studios will set up hard drive farms to store the data and replace hard drives as they become outdated.
Maybe with digital there will never again be a lost film.
