It started in 2010 with The Social Network. It continued into 2011 with The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Then, when David Fincher decided to go off the grid for a little while, 2012′s Life of Pi and 2013′s Gangster Squad advanced it further. And one day soon it might change everything.

Let’s go back to the beginning.

Production companies are no longer in the business of filmmaking. Wait. Excuse me. Correction: production companies are no longer in the business of filmmaking on film. They are locking up their vaults and cancelling their film stock shipments and as soon as Christopher Nolan and Quentin Tarantino are out of frame (movie joke, get it?!) the art of shooting on film will be as fringe and niche as ice sculpting. The art of projecting from film will be as fringe and niche as mashed potato sculpting.

But we have enough moralizing articles on this subject. »
