    This was discussed at length at AVS a while back; I am a bit surprised nobody mentioned it here.

    I really can't get too enthused over somebody who is anti-film though. HD filmmaking is wonderful for small budgets, but film done right is still the best quality medium out there.

    Jason,

    I agree with you 100% about digital opening up some great opportunities for films with limited budget, especially in terms of distribution.

    As long as Cuban doesn't rip out all the film projectors (or fire the only employees that know how to keep them looking their best), I say go for it.

    Of course, at this point, since many big-studio films don't have digital distribution available, he can't rip out all the projectors.
