Aaron- I know this is a few months late, my apologies on the tardiness, but
I'd like to address what this thread was originally about...

my problem with your original post is not that film will eventually stop
being produced (this may or may not happen, and Forbes should certainly not
be our proof - this issue is bigger than a "business model")  it was that
digital cameras have "surpassed" the quality of most film stocks. The future
of film will not be in its ability to provide more information, but rather
in its antiquity, its glow, its physical and tangible characteristics, its
craft, something that only celluloid can provide. When you claim the
inevitable demise of film you sound like a best buy or radioshack salesman.
As long as this list exists, as long as there are films being made outside
of the "industry", celluloid will exist.

I'd like to provide a different example: screenprinting. Why has that not
become obsolete? Can digital printers not produce the same "result"... and
yet artists have found a way to encorporate the medium into contemporary
printing practice.

I am 22 years old, I was *RAISED *with digital and made the conscious
decision to work with celluloid. I fully understand the technology, and for
me, for the purposed of my art, I choose analog.


It is an issue of artistry not industry.
