Culture, Creativity and Disappearing Celluloid
In June 2014, following the closure of Technicolor and Deluxe film laboratories, Andrew Dawson and Sean P Holmes produced a short documentary highlighting the skills and creativity of the men and women who worked in film laboratories. While most film and television industry experts welcome the digital revolution this documentary draws attention to the significant cultural and creative losses involved in the switch from celluloid. The documentary can be viewed at: http://www.audiovisualthinking.org/videos/7-celluid/
