An article in Time magazine looks at Hollywood’s love affair with traditional film and how big players like George Lucas are trying to change the perception of digital.

Oscar revelers seemed unaware that movies have two big problems: the way they’re made and the way they’re shown.

It has often been noted that if Henry Ford were to come back today, he would wonder why no one had come up with a better idea than the internal combustion engine. A similar thought may occur to any visitor to a movie shoot. Dozens, maybe hundreds of technicians adjust the lights, apply the makeup and dress the set, much the way it was done almost 100 years ago. And as in D.W. Griffith’s day, the film still runs through a camera, then is processed, reproduced many times and sent to theaters.
