An interesting piece on the future of film making that is irrevocably linked to photography, especially documentary photography and its raison d'être of ‘being there’.
“The gap is definitely closing,” Gerstenberger says, adding, “The quality’s there, and it becomes much more about the story that’s being told and the knowledge and experience of the filmmaker and the team, rather than the camera or the tool.” In other words, we’ll know that smartphone films have reached their most mature form when they aren’t a story at all.

“There is simply not enough room on our railways for the millions of people who rely on a train for their daily commute.
