Digital Film Production Time

Digital Film Production Time

(p.59) Chapter 3 Digital Film Production Time
From Film Practice to Data Process

Sarah Atkinson

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter explores the notion of digital film production ‘time’ By examining the various different temporalities of film production. Drawing primarily upon the case-study materials of Ginger & Rosa, the chapter maps the 2012 moment of transition from working with film to working with data, and the hybrid practices and protocols that manifested as a result. It examines how the introduction of new technologies and digital processes challenged the orthodoxies of long-established film industry production practice including how workflow patterns were effected with the advent of the digital in film production. The chapter includes the proposition of a ‘Creative Core’ Structure of Production model with which to understand the determinants and impacts of on-set workflow, illuminating the emergence a specific aesthetic of production which is referred to as ‘workflow-warp’ and ‘workflow-weft.’ The former refers to the temporal bending of the traditional film structure and pace out of shape, and the latter – the process of weaving together a complex blend of the film and the digital into an inextricable tapestry.
