End of Celluloid. Film Futures in the Digital Age

A book that charts a journey across cinematic boundaries. Across filmed and imagined digital spaces, between the layers of fact and fiction from moving imagemakers redefining the rules of film. THE END OF CELLULOID is a book that will change the way you see film. Arguing that filmmaking is being superseded by a spectrum of moving image, it extends the range of what we think of as filmmaking. It explores the latest in digital film and new forms of ‘advanced moving image’, highlighting the most exciting and innovative examples of this entertainment. It includes commentary on highly regarded filmmakers and those starting to make an impact who are influencing this next generation of filmmaking. The book presents an insight into these new styles infiltrating the mainstream, taking in film, animation, FMV and machinima (computer gaming animations), digital tv, pop promos, websites, PDA and PVP devices. Moving imagemakers from all disciplines are redefining the rules of film. The End of Celluloid features works by artists including: Jonas Åkerlund (Spun), Roger Avary (Rules of Attraction), Matthew Barney (The Cremaster Cycle), Danny Boyle (28 Days Later), Chris Cunningham (Flex, Windowlicker), Mike Figgis (Hotel, Timecode), Grant Gee (Meeting People is Easy), Lars von Trier (Idioterne), Peter Greenaway (The Tulse Luper Suitcases), Hideo Kojima (Metal Gear Solid series), David Lynch (Rabbits, The Third Place), Koji Morimoto (Noiseman Sound Insect), Hideo Nakata (Ringu), Marc Evans (My Little Eye), Mark Neale (No Maps for these Territories), Mamoru Oshii (Avalon), Bill Viola (The Greeting, The Passions), Kieron Evans (Finisterre), Kinematic (9-11 Survivor), Shynola (Radiohead blips & music videos), Andy & Larry Wachowski (Animatrix, The Matrix trilogy).
