I never would have considered such a video possible. To have filmed the heart and soul of Feynman's lectures is staggering.

Thanks for posting this. Fantastic stuff. A few months ago I read an article about photographing lightning bolts with a very complex high tech camera. One frame is about a millionth of a second (and they have to cope with ridiculous amounts of light) - still that is nothing compared to one trillionth of a second coming so close to the speed of light, it's scary.

Anyway: since 35mm film is officially all but gone in 2012, please follow Mr. Peter Jackson and speed your digital cameras up. If you are too scared about backwards compatibility (many a careful digital restoration is being preserved on 35mm at 24 fps because this format has survived almost a century - until now) then multiply 24 with whole numbers. How about 48fps (Peter Jackson uses it as we speak) - or even better: 96 fps? It would also improve on the 3D technology.

All I can say is: let's go forward. Stop the imitation of the "film look" - let's come up with something else. The "film look" is not the best solution to capture and reproduce moving images. It has a certain look and feel and I love to see it on movies which have been made during its time. Now it's time to move on. I can't wait.

I think I posted something about this elsewhere, but Douglas Trumbull is experimenting with 120 fps, which seems ideal to me, as it reduces down to 24, 30, and 60. That's the gamut of common frame rates, with the lone hair in the soup being Peter Jackson and his 48 fps stuff.

Naw, it's just 24 fps multplied by 2 or any whole number multiple. Great choice anyway since it is 100% compatible with 24 fps.

Since we are in a digital age where frame rates are of none-importance (except for backwards compatability) - I'd say: what the heck anyway.

Farewell film. It has been great. Hello whatever..............
