The documentary investigates the history, process and workflow of both digital and photochemical film creation. We show what artists and filmmakers have been able to accomplish with both film and digital and how their needs and innovations have helped push filmmaking in new directions. Interviews with directors, cinematographers, colorists, scientists, engineers and artists reveal their experiences and feelings about working with film and digital--where we are now, how we got here and what the future may bring.

Watch as Michael Cioni and the Light Iron team demonstrate how simple your workflow can be with Light Iron mobile systems and iApps. In a continuous take, we shoot a media clip and then route it through look setting with the LILY PAD cart; replay with the LIVE PLAY iApp; dailies processing, backup, and editorial rendering with the OUTPOST cart; and both individual and group dailies review with the TODAILIES iApp.
