    Fantastic podcast, and I’ve listened to them all! Questions were spot on. Not to disagree with the filmmakers interviewed, but would luv to see an objective analysis of exactly what makes a traditional film bleach bypass superior to that done digitally. What specifically is ‘better’? ditto for digital vs film based grain.
