        i'm not sure if it's that, sometimes they just roll out the same video to everyone for some reason
        like a while back, maybe half a year ago, they started recommending this video about life in some poor area of the midwest or whatever to everyone i know
        and i'm not talking american Cinemaphile users, i'm talking alcoholic and autistic finns, romanian weebs, and many others
        it's obvious that every so often they pick a video and decide everyone needs to see it

      him using DUNC is a massive self-own for a lot of reasons
      DUNC's set design is a huge offender; let's take this pic as an example
      >too much empty space
      >too clean/featureless
      >not enough props/furniture; no lighting fixtures in the room, no chairs, nothing on the walls
      >all the colors are dull and desaturated and the costuming does not effectively differentiate the characters or make them objects of interest
      They receive Stilgar in this room, but what the frick would this room actually be used for? There's nothing in it, not even books or maps or writing implements

            That anon above with their analysis of the room is also correct. A normie won't pick up on any of that, but a person who isn't completely stupid will start to get a small nagging feeling that something is off, or feel the scene is boring.

        Back in the day, those "film emulation" technologies looked ridiculously fake and goofy for Windows XP Movie Maker-tier effects.
        Only amateurs dared use them seriously, and it's mostly used as a joke.

        Until Studio Ghibli invented their own improved version of that filter, which looks really great. Because they want that retro 35mm anime look to their films.
        It's internally called the Ponyo Filter, since it was made for their film Ponyo. And then they used it for all their later films like The Wind Rises and The Boy and the Heron, and remasters of older digital films like Spirited Away and Howl's Moving Castle.
        Hell, they even used it for their 3D film Earwig and the Witch.
        And then Ghibli allowed other people to use their Ponyo Filter to emulate 35mm film.
        Now people won't stop going to Ghibli for their tech while filming digitally, and using it for films like Knives Out.

          This is what the Ponyo Filter looks like when Studio Ghibli uses it themselves.
          This is from the very first film that used it: Ponyo.

            And other competitors just cropped up thanks to them.

            No. Ghibli didn't invent anything. Plenty of other companies have created filters that emulate film stock and film grain for digital video. This is nothing new.

              Eh, I'd say Yedlin's own tech is much better. I saw The Boy and the Heron in a theater recently and not for a second did I think it looked like Ghibli's 35mm features.

                It's a lot more subtle. But it does bring a warmth and texture to their films compared to modern digital 2D animation. While still looking pretty clean.

                Subtle to the point of looking like digital with a very fine grain filter on top of it, and a bit of softening so the lines aren't too sharp. It's nice, but hardly impressive to me. You could do that in Resolve in less than two minutes.

                Look at that pic from Nausicaä, I wouldn't say Ghibli's modern films look anywhere near as filmic. The grain is much stronger, and the colors have that film stock look that they're not really even trying to emulate.

        Fincher's digital movies don't even try do film emulation. There's nothing film-like about them. They're some of the most blatantly digital movies out there with a clean and sharp RED camera look. Even with Mank he only went for black and white, he didn't try to make it look like old film.

        There's sort of truth in this.
        When people jerk off about the "film" look, they're actually attracted to all the flaws of the way film was developed and that the projector would mark on the final output.
        If you shoot with film and you use modern techniques as well as modern lighting, you'll end up with a result indistinguishable from shooting digital. Eg. The plane scene in TDKR.
        The opposite is also true. If you shoot digital but use the same lighting set ups as they did in the 70s, put some grain on top and grade it with higher contrast purposely trying to emulate a 70s aesthetic, the result will be indistinguishable from actual film. Eg. Eileen

        The problem is that the vast majority of people who talk about film vs digital are morons who haven't ever used either (or not in a professional manner) and don't understand this. The screeching morons on here are incapable of understanding that a film like Dunc looks the way it looks on purpose. They aren't trying to make it look like Lynch's Dune because they (Fraser and Villeneuve) prefer that look. (And so do most people. The average person isn't a basement dwelling neet who thinks that lots of film grain and natural white balance automatically makes a film look better.)

        The problem is further compounded everytime people whine about remasters fricking with the colour. One of the flaws/quirks of film is that there isn't such a thing as the "correct" look. To transfer an analogue image to digital, you have to lock in a look that didn't previously exist. So it's impossible to watch an analogue film on a digital screen with complete accuracy because there was no accuracy in the first place. The look you got on your projector was determined by numerous factors that changed constantly.

          You think this looks anything like an actual movie from the 70s?

          It looks just as sterile as any Marvel movie.
          Digital will never recreate the look of film because they're inherently different mediums. Disagreements are just cope.

    in a world where 90% of TV owners not only have motion smoothing enabled on their tv, but they don't even know what motion smoothing is, there's no room for nuance around how clean an image looks.

    Sorry but Keanu Reeves did a much better Doucmentary on this called "Side by Side" released in 2013.

    To summarize.

    -Digital cameras have a hyper sharp and clean look. Almost too sharp

    -Digital Cameras process color very differently compared to film.

    -Film has a richer and deeper mixture of colors and deeper blacks/shadows.

    -New Generation of filmmakers are raised on digital cameras and don't know how to light for old school film. This changes how movies are lit and shot with cameras. They don't know how to achieve the lighting used on older films. Their efforts aren't quite as good.

    -Digital cameras have nearly closed the gap with film in terms of quality but it isn't the same. But digital is just too convenient.

    -Film requires much bulkier cameras, massive amounts of support gear, and paying to develop the film at a development studio.
