Every person who picks up a camera has a dream of seeing their film projected on a larger than life screen; it’s some form of the holy grail for visual storytellers. The vast majority of the time you’re watching your film on a small screen — whether it’s a Moviola or Steenbeck or a PC running Premier or an even iMac — the editing, historically, and currently, is done a screen about the size of tablet… yet, the final version was certainly going to be for theatrical presentation. Or at least that was the dream.
In our current digital, Wi-Fi everywhere age, nearly all films are going to be seen primarily on a handheld device.
Yet this robs the viewer of the experience the filmmakers intended for you to have. Every filmmaker is making his or her movie to be seen by as many people as possible, and we spend a great deal of time laboring to get the sound and the video to be as dynamic and immersive as possible.
