Las Vegas — For the longest time, director Ang Lee (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Hulk) resisted making any of his films using digital. But to do most any of the things that Lee sees as the future of cinema, digital is a must.
“This is really the beginning of a … quest for new storytelling,” Lee said April 16, kicking off the annual NAB Show. “Now, I see something new [technologically], I want to get into it. The more I see, the more questions I have.”
Get into it he did, with his upcoming release Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk being the first-ever film shot at in 4K at a whopping 120 frames per second, with 3D thrown in for good measure. NAB Show attendees could be overheard praising a demo of the film, with people lining up for hours to get a peek.
