Cinematographer uses digital instead of film

Roger Deakins

 After many films and and 9 Oscar nominations cinematographer Roger Deakins has decided to go digital.

Considered one of the pre-eminent directors of photography by his peers, he has remained committed to shooting on film through such movies as No Country for Old Men and True Grit, dismissing many of the images shot in recent years with digital cameras as “rubbish.

But with the rapid advancements in digital cinematography, Deakins is becoming a convert. He shot his most recent film, Andrew Niccol’s Now, using the new Arri Alexa digital camera. And as he prepares to shoot the next James Bond movie, which Sam Mendes will direct this year, he tells The Hollywood Reporter, “I’m probably going to use Alexa on my next shoot — it seems very likely.”
