Martha Colburn stopped by to show some new films.
One, "Triumph of the Wild" is being acquired by the MoMA. We walked up a block in the snow to check out the HD transfer/color correct from her 16mm negative.
From there she's recording to 35mm and various tape/digital formats. Tape formats only stay standard for about 10 - 15 years. 1 inch, Umatic, D1, Digibeta, now a few formats a vying for HD tape supremacy -HDCAM SR and the older D5. Pure digital is ok, but drives will break down faster than tape.
