Scorsese praises Kodak film
Los Angeles, California/Rochester, N.Y. - Kodak has received a big endorsement - from one of Hollywood's most iconic filmmakers.
Martin Scorsese released a statement this week praising the importance of film, saying, in part:
"Would anyone dream of telling young artists to throw away their paints and canvases because iPads are so much easier to carry? ...Film, even now, offers a richer visual palette than HD.
"Our industry - our filmmakers - rallied behind Kodak because we knew that we couldn't afford to lose them, the way we've lost so many other film stocks. This news is a positive step towards preserving film, the art form we love."
Other filmmakers who have expressed their support for Kodak include Judd Apatow and Quentin Tarantino.
