  1. Why shoot film if your movie is set to premiere on HBO anyway? And at the cost of TWO shooting days...?

      That I wouldn't dispute - no matter what the budget, it should be spent wisely. I'm not convinced film is wisely spent.

      this is interesting. i heard in an interview with producer joel silver that effects shot cost $80,000, say for speed racer. multiply that by 2,000 fx shots and there's your budget. the numbers sound a little fuzzy but it gives you an idea how money will just explode from the studios when working on the bigger ones.

      The film vs. digital debate is all just a manufactured throughline for the show. There is a difference between the two, but it's isn't something Jason hasn't dealt with before. He had the same issue with his short (that got him into the finals) and there, he shot... DIGITAL... to save money. The whole eFilm / Fotokem grading sessions story beats are nonsense to add drama. He's already clearly aware of the tradeoffs of each choice.
