A good trend in movie making will accelerate with digital projectors


Recently our family went to see "Facing the Giants" and really enjoyed it. The acting was uneven, but overall a very toucing movie. The movie is particularly interesting because it shows the trend to smaller budget grass roots films. "Facing the Giants" was made for only $100,000 but has done extremely well at the box office due to word of mouth.
This trend toward the masses being able to make films will accelerate drastically once digital projectors are common in theatres. Without the cost of printing the actual film, anyone with a digital camera and a Mac could make a movie, and with enough buzz get it into theatres.
