I can see many filmmakers in the future saying, “God, I wish we were shooting on film still.” Those discussions will probably always be around, but I think the fact is that digital is going to be around to stay because it actually makes sense and people seem to be embracing it.
We talked with Neil LaBute about new distribution platforms, film vs. digital and more.
Well, if you’re made enough films you really know what you need money for and what you don’t need money for. There’s virtually nothing on the cutting-room floor for this film - you shoot straight to the bone. It ends up being kind of like a film co-op, since you’re paying everybody the same rate, the actors are doing their own hair and make-up, no trailers. It really becomes a communal project.
We talked to the legendary filmmaker about the changing definition of film, Vimeo, and the myth of the communal moviegoing experience.

We spoke to the Oscar-nominated actor about the Internet, his love of Vimeo and why actors and independent artists need to embrace VOD.

Get Their Attention: 5 Ideas for Memorable Digital Outreach from Vimeo Fest and Beyond
By Amanda McCormick
The Vimeo Festival & Awards (which wrapped its second edition on Saturday, June 9) is definitely not your average film festival. Technology panels are interspersed with workshops on lighting, sound and editing; videos often run in the sub-five-minute range; and unpacking the unique challenges of being a maker in the digital age is always at the foreground of conversation. Which is to say that the focus is pretty much everywhere but the classic 90-minute-ish film you’d see in the movie theater.
