I think there's room for both. There will always be purists who think there's magic in film that doesn't exist in digital, maybe they're right, I haven't been lucky enough to use film so I wouldn't know.

But digital technology offers the ability for anyone to become a director and to film in locations you wouldn't normally be able to or do things you might not previously be able to, which is exciting because it gives everyone a chance to make an amazing film and audiences the chances to see amazing films they might not have been able to before.

I think directors should be free to choose, and that anyone who is stuffy about going digital or using film, probably isn't a true film fan, because whilst there may be a magical feeling in film, the advent of digital cameras that allow anyone to have a go could produce some incredibly interesting material, you wouldn't have had a chance to see before...
