Scott Wilkinson and the End of Cinematic Dreams

Episode 1778 (28:30)

Scott Wilkinson

Scott joins Leo to talk about how movies are now far too realistic looking thanks to ultra high definition and higher frame rates. The result is that the dreamlike quality of cinema is disappearing. Leo doesn't like it. Scott does. Scott says it's because we've been used to 100 years of 24 frames per second, and now filmmakers are shooting at 60 fps and above. Scott says that people will eventually get used to it. The next generation certainly well. And eventually, it will become the norm. 

In other news, Scott is now contributing to and has an article out on HDR, and how it works, chiefly on projectors. Leo calls it the bible on HDR.
