Woody Allen Says Shooting Digitally Was the ‘Exact Same’ as Celluloid

"Digital can be very beautiful, as you can see. To me it was the exact same thing, no compromises, nothing different."

Woody Allen’s Café Society opened the Cannes Film Festival this week. Allen’s 47th feature film, set against the backdrop of 1930s Hollywood, is his first to be shot digitally. It was shot with the Sony F65 by Vittorio Storaro (his first digital film as well).

“We went through the exact same motions as shooting with celluloid,” Allen said at a press conference for the film, as reported by Indiewire. “Digital can be very beautiful as you can see. To me it was the exact same thing, no compromises, nothing different.”
