Robert Zemeckis Condones Digital, Condemns 3D Conversion

Publish date:

Director Robert Zemeckis talks to The A.V. Club about his new film, Flight, and his strong beliefs about digital filmmaking and 3D. He says, "I think it’s great that [digital is] happening, finally, both in the production and in exhibition, that we’re eliminating film. That’s a wonderful thing, in my opinion. [Film is] good, it’s been around for over a hundred years, it’s done its job, time to move on. It’s 2012. But there are also things I don’t like that are happening, like these 3D conversions. I think that’s bulls***, as Hollywood likes to kill the goose that lays the golden egg. A 3D movie has to be planned. It can’t be something that’s decided after it’s done. That would be like making a movie and then saying, 'Yeah, let’s release this in black and white.' And then desaturate it."
