CNN's "Film: Not Dead Yet" – shot on Canon 7D

By Cubie King

Following our two previous DSLR pieces my co-collaborator Carlos Martinell and I decided that we wanted to do something more ambitious.

We thought it would be fascinating and fun to explore the vibrant NYC analogue film community – with our two Canon 7D cameras – and to do it creatively.  This was not a conceit, in fact quite the opposite; we hoped to show that people are indeed still working with film and doing quite well for themselves.

The rest hopefully speaks for itself.

As we move further into the digital world we hope the fundamentals of the medium are remembered and respected.

    Well this is really gorgeous and I very much liked the unusual cutting on the interviews. Cubie King has done well to match the documentary style with the aesthetic approach the New York filmmakers take to their analogue photography.

    I was mesmerised by the motion graphics and titles. Did you have those to hand, or were they created for this film. If so, how?
