On most modern HDTVs, motion interpolation, or the "Smooth Motion" effect, is cheapening the aesthetic of content that filmmakers lovingly create.

Check out DP Reed Morano's Petition to Nix That Awful 'Smooth Motion' Effect on TVs

World-class cinematographer Reed Morano ASC has started a petition to put an end to this insanity by requesting that TVs come out of the box with the effect turned off. Chances are, if you've walked through the TV section at your local electronics shop, you've probably noticed that the sample content playing on the display models is not only absurdly bright and over-saturated, but that the motion is reminiscent of the digitally shot soap operas that populate our televisions during the middle of the day. It's an effect that is called motion interpolation, or "smooth motion" depending on the brand of television, and it uses algorithms to generate extra frames between the existing frames in the content, which, in theory, reduces motion blur and makes for a more "realistic" television experience. The issue here is an interesting one. RTHK 鏗鏘集 做夢者如是說 2014-8-3. Scorsese's Tisch Commencement Will Remind You Why You Became a Filmmaker in the First Place.

" However, Scorsese's speech is all about failure, the cinematic struggle, and fighting to remember the reason why you even picked up a camera in the first place. There are so many great lessons from his speech: Be a lifelong learner! Stay true to your creative self! In this creative environment, which can be pretty savage at times, we need reminders like Scorsese's -- and reminderers like Scorsese.

Robert Richardson on Bringing ‘The Hateful Eight’ to Life

The relationship has distinguished Tarantino’s visual language considerably from that of films like “Reservoir Dogs,” “Pulp Fiction” and “Jackie Brown,” which established his voice in the 1990s. On “The Hateful Eight,” the collaboration reaches new heights with not just a 70mm production, but one captured through archaic, wide-angle Ultra Panavision 70 lenses that haven’t seen the light of day since 1966’s “Khartoum.” This was a considerable undertaking. How do you feel about it all now that everything is locked and ready to go out? I love the movie. He’s been impressively adamant about the process on this.
