    Editor's Guild has a piece on this as well, not so much from Apple's propaganda. :p

    Didn't it say something about 16 megapixel? I didn't know you could buy those in the store. But even if you could, wouldn't it be like, a couple grand?

    It is very similar to nightmare before christmas, however it is revolutionary because it is the first one to use digital cameras for stop motion animation. Read before you make yourself sound like an idiot.

    Anybody with talent can now do what the big boys do, since the technology is available to anyone. No more f***ing excuses.

    Revolutionary: Marked by or resulting in radical change.

    This is not revolutionary. In fact, since 99% of viewers won't notice a difference, it isn't even a radical change. It's simply a move forward in the technology used in the making of stop-motion films, described as 'revolutionary' because some copywriter liked this popular catch-word.

    In terms of post production workflow for a movie like this it is a radical change.

    Now, why don't you take your own advise and stop flaming.

    Amazon.com lists it for $8,000.

    If you are making a movie with it, that price seems very reasonable.

    This is exactly wrong. One characteristic of a skilled craftsman is that he does not leave millmarks on his work. The cinemagraphic standard of quality is 35 mm motion picture film. With The Corpse Bride, Tim Burton has made a motion picture that is indistinguishable from 35 mm motion picture film at much lower cost. With the help of this new technology, the quality of your film will be determined less by your financial backing and more by your talent. This is very definition of revolutionary.

    Umm.. yes, really. Was he not literally describing that the movie is "marked by or resulting in radical change?"



    Anyhoo.. I find most of Burton's work to be revolutionary on a personal level. Can't way to see this one.

    I've always been a fan of stop-motion animation, so it's pretty gratifying to read that you can do a hollywood-style feature film with mostly 'off-the-shelf' equipment.

    To me, this is comparable to what Virginia Tech did with its supercomputer cluster using G5 PowerMacs. It's revolutionary in the sense that you make the tools available to a much more wider group of people.

    So you're saying that the only difference is that this time around Mr. Burton cut out the considerably large cost of film and developing, in favor of a digital solution. It is a known fact that, with high quality film you can get the same, if not better quality pictures as with digital. So the only real change was the price.
    Now, I ask, is it still a revolution if every person I know has made this equal-quality-at-lower-cost 'revolution' in their own photographic lives? What about if hollywood has made this change too? What about if my local DMV, a government agency that is notoriously behind on the times, has made this change already? Are we to call every application of a new cost-cutting technology 'revolutionary'?



    For those of you like snkTab who are bored, just unsubscribe from the thread.

    Just because viewers dont realise it, it dosent mean its revolutionary. To avg. person, Matrix Reloaded and Revolutions were cool, not going to get into if you like the plot or whatever but in terms of cinematography, everybody liked it but it ends there. Nobody comes to realise how ground breaking those movies were.

    Hell audiance probably dosent know, when your filming, only the main actors are talkin and everybody else is just liping it and they add the audio later but it dosent mean it dosent happen just because they dont notice it

    The process of making the movie is revolutionary, in that no film is being used during production.

    For the average theater goer, the next revolution is going to be in 3D.

    For me it would be revolutionary these days if they managed to produce a good film - so is it any good?

    You are taking things a bit far, but yes.
