Side by Side
Can film survive our digital future?
Since the invention of cinema, the standard format for recording moving images has been film. Over the past two decades, a new form of digital filmmaking has emerged, creating a groundbreaking evolution in the medium. Keanu Reeves explores the development of cinema and the impact of digital filmmaking via in-depth interviews with Hollywood masters, such as James Cameron, David Fincher, David Lynch, Christopher Nolan, Martin Scorsese, George Lucas, Steven Soderbergh, and many more.
As Side By Side is a documentary, I have been freely reading my friends reviews of it over the last number of months. Those who know me know that I’m kind of a geek with a particular interest in film technology. Back in my student film days I think I was more interested in the technology than the stories the technology were to convey .. possibly why I was so bad at it. I wasn’t expecting anything extraordinary here in this documentary, but I surely was interested in seeing it.
I loved it.
I think the distinguished interviewees brought out not just the reason why the switch has happened, but also why the preference for photochemical analogue is not just…
An immensely intriguing tour of the evolution of filmmaking process in the cinematic medium over the years, Side by Side is a side by side comparison of the two formats of crafting a motion picture that's available to filmmakers today; first is shooting on photochemical film which has been in use since the dawn of cinema while the other is shooting digitally which dominates the industry at present & has made the traditional film stock an endangered format.
Directed by Christopher Kenneally, this documentary presents Keanu Reeves as the questioner discussing about the evolution, impact & innovations the film camera has made since its creation and joining him in the discussion are Hollywood's esteemed directors like Martin Scorsese, James Cameron, Richard Linklater,…
Christopher Kenneally’s Side by Side is a pleasingly balanced documentary about the virtues and problems of both digital and celluloid film. An affable Keanu Reeves narrates the film that chronicles the science, art and impact of digital cinema whilst interviewing influential figures involved in the use, production and business of digital filmmaking.
Perhaps the most impressive element of the entire documentary is its extensive roll-call of contributors. From influential filmmakers (James Cameron, Martin Scorsese, David Lynch to name but three) to high profile cinematographers and editors, the film explores the opinions of those truly in the know. Although the film is ultimately concerned with the impact digital filmmaking has on celluloid and the industry as a whole it is a…
Tracing the now decades-long cinematic paradigm shift from photo-chemical film to digital imaging, "Side by Side" is a fascinating documentary about an art form in flux. Interviews with directors, cinematographers, editors, and special effects artists lead the film's audience through through a transition that is technical, artistic, and controversial. For anyone who cares about film or filmmaking, this documentary is pure catnip. For cinematic laypeople, the film may be less impressive, but it will still rate as something interesting.
A vast array of film clips and prestigious talking heads track and discuss the technical and artistic churn that is occurring in today's filmmaking. "Side by Side" takes no sides as it explores both the excitement and the sadness of the…
I love this documentary, mainly because it consists of famous directors sending subtle insults flying at the opposing format.
Christopher Nolan's comments on digital in particular, are brilliantly classy and potent. I'm not even kidding, at one point he compares digital to a chewy Chips Ahoy cookie, a food that seems awesome but just tastes terrible and fake.
You go Nolan.
Hosted by Keanu Reeves, this documentary examines "the history, process, and workflow of both the digital revolution and photochemical film creation" --- it sheds light on the much dividing discourse for the future of cinema. There are interviews from iconic filmmakers (Cameron, Nolan, Fincher, Lynch, Rodriguez, Scorsese, Soderbergh, von Trier, Lucas, and even the Wachowski siblings) as they share their opinion from their choice of film/digital cameras, mode of archiving, and to the era of DSLR filmmaking. You also get to see almost every detail in the filmmaking process like it's Filmmaking 101. Hands down, this is the most in-depth, comprehensive, interesting, eye-opening, and if not the most important documentary about film you'll see to date. I highly, highly recommend this for film buffs and filmmakers alike.
Macht nicht den Fehler jede technische Entwicklung zu verteufeln und in Erinnerungen zu schwelgen (auch wenn das hier so mancher Regisseur und Kameramann tut), sondern verhält sich sehr neutral. Versucht vielmehr die jeweiligen Vor- und Nachteile beider Aufnahmetechniken zu erläutern mit der Schlussfolgerung, dass beide Techniken ihre Berechtigung haben können.
Made me realize how mediocre my film watching experiences are. From phone screens to mediocre screening theatres, i might have never experienced something close to 70mm old school film screening.
I don't know, it felt really amateur documentary
The framing. Hate it, especially those with the Interviewer - Keanu in it.
The content, the topic is interesting, but, the way it was made, not.
52 minutes TV version.
Sorta like a documentary, sorta like an interview, this "movie" is built upon the opinions and experiences of modern direcotrs, editors, cinematographers, VFX supervisors, and many other people in the industry and a debate that is still swirling in the minds of today's film buff, film v digital.
I can't really describe all the information that the movie gives you, but it is very informative if you are interested in how films work today compared to back then.
