I don't think he is the only one with this mindset. I think james cameron wants to do an avatar sequel in 48 or 60p. They claim it gives smoother motion. Should be interesting to see how it actually looks
High frame rates look "smoother" and almost more realistic. 60p (or 48p for that matter) motion makes me want to stab myself in the eyes with rusty forks. Even 30p/60i can be a little bit iffy for me, 24fps has the best look in my opinion. Some people like the 48/60p look, some dont. i would be disappoint if big film makers start using reds and shooting 48p.
Yes! I always thought that summer school edit looked odd, if that's what 48/60p motion looks like then that really is a poor move. There's something dramatic and cinematic about 24p, film shouldn't have to look that realistic...especially a film like the Hobbit.
I'd argue that a hundred years of cinema has ingrained something into all of us that I'd rather not have fucked around but I guess in the interest of changing things for the heck of it...
They do have enough money to do whatever they want with film, but that doesn't mean for a second what James Cameron or Peter Jackson do when they make these silly changes is smart or beneficial to film.
What I'm interested in is why he made this decision, and the bigger question... will they market it? (as they did with 3D)
I doubt they'll bother trying to use it in marketing as a "new, smoother frame technology" or some other BS, but that leaves us guessing why Jackson made this decision...
