Sony has introduced its first 4K digital video camera, the CineAlta F65, at NAB (National Association of Broadcasters). Sony executives claim that "It's only a mater of time before 4K becomes a standard in cinema," and they are probably right. The camera, which is being aimed to replace 35mm cameras in movie productions, has an 8K 20-megapixel CMOS image sensor, with approximately 20 megapixels and 16-bit RAW output. The camera's 4K resolution is four times the size of the commonly used 2K cameras being used today (note: RED cameras can handle 4K), and it offers a "wide dynamic range, wide color reproduction and low light sensitivity."

Disney has released a 2 minute Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides featurette titled "From Disneyland to the Big Screen" which would have been cooler if it spent some time to show just how much the ride has influenced this film, and the prior trilogy. I would love to see a video comparing the references from the ride that made it to the movies, and the movie references and characters that made it to the theme park.

Time Out Magazine has an article on why film projectionists as we know them, are on the verge of extinction — going from mechanical operators to IT geeks. "While a 35mm projector is a mechanical device with moving parts, a digital projector – aside from the lamp – is very much a piece of IT. Projectionists who have been able to strip down and reassemble a 35mm projector with their eyes closed are suddenly being presented with a box and an on-off switch."

Funko! will be releasing cute little POP! Figures for Pixar film properties.

Michael Bay has posted on his website forums to debunk a Transformers: Dark of the Moon rumor that Soundwave's alt mode is the white Mercedes-Benz that Carly was spotted driving on set:  "Mercedes would never let us make their car into a bad Decepticon. Car company's really frown on that – I can't say what the game company and comics do that's their own thing. They don't have the same constraints movies do. It's Carly's car."

Elijah Wood talked to ComingSoon about returning to shoot scenes for The Lord of the Rings prequel The Hobbit in November/Devember 2011: "I'm just looking forward to going back to New Zealand and spending a bit of time there. There will be plenty of old friends that will be a part of it. Largely I would imagine the entire crew would be relatively the same. So in some ways I think it's going to be a very surreal journey. It will feel like traveling back in time a little. But I'm excited. There's a lot of new elements to this. They're shooting on the Red [camera]. They're shooting in 3D, so that should be interesting. And I'm excited to read the script. I'm very excited to see what they've done with The Hobbit. They've stretched it out over the course of two films – I'm so curious as to what other elements they've woven in, because there are certainly additional works that refer to that same time period that they could weave into it. So I'm just very excited to sort of see what the ultimate vision is. I was down there about a year ago, February, and I saw some of the design. This is when Guillermo [del Toro] was still attached. So I've seen a lot of the design work. I mean, it's extraordinary! And Alan Lee and John Howe are back in the art department doing designs for it. I think it's going to feel very familiar, and different as well."

At Cinema Con, James Cameron began his push for "the next revolution in cinema", which he thinks is shooting and distributing films at high framerates. Cameron plant to shoot Avatar 2 at high sppeds and we've since learned that Peter Jackson is shooting The Hobbit at 48fps. Now is the time to learn what this all means. CrunchGear has a great article titled "Frame Wars" explaining what this all means.

Back to the Future writer Bob Gale responded to fan questions on the ArcLight facebook page. He reveals that they were approached to do a 3D conversion of the first film, but turned it down: "Bob Zemeckis and I have repeatedly said that we're not interested in doing either a Part 4 or authorizing a remake.  The only creative reason to remake a movie is to improve it in some way, and we think we got BTTF right the first time.  We were approached about doing a 3-D conversion of BTTF as well, but we passed on that idea because the movie was never intended to be in 3-D.  We're purists!"

Fast Company has a fascinating article titled "Seven Myths About Transmedia Storytelling Debunked" which takes a look at what the fast growing Hollywood trend is, and is not. For example, Myth #1 is "Transmedia Storytelling refers to any strategy involving more than one media platform" and Henry Jenkins explains:

The entertainment industry has long developed licensed products, reproducing the same stories across multiple channels (for example, novelizations). Increasingly, broadcast content is also available on line. And many films are adopted from books (or now, comic books). None of these necessarily constitute transmedia storytelling. In transmedia, elements of a story are dispersed systematically across multiple media platforms, each making their own unique contribution to the whole. Each medium does what it does best–comics might provide back-story, games might allow you to explore the world, and the television series offers unfolding episodes.

/Film reader Andy Rupp has created an infographic explaining Christopher Nolan's Memento. Rupp explains: 

"The whole Idea is that the black lines represent the film sequence, while the white lines represent the narrative sequence, thus the sort of zig zag pattern with the back and forth between the color sequences and black and white sequences.  The Polaroids zig zag back and forth, with the beginning and ending of each scene sequence being displayed, as well as stills of key information important with the development of the story.  I am hoping the rather simple explanation within the image itself will help with any issues of understanding how the poster functions.  And please, download the full size image.  I know it is ginormous, but it is really the only size I could reduce it down to in order to make the poster, with all the type and Polaroid image stills legible (which I displayed on an actual film screen during the presentation in order to show off the amount of detail and work that went into the project). "
