An article at the moviemaking technology website Creative Cow reports that the three major manufacturers of motion picture film cameras — Aaton, ARRI and Panavision — have all ceased production of new cameras within the last year, and will only make digital movie cameras from now on. As the article’s author, Debra Kaufman, poignantly puts it, “Someone, somewhere in the world is now holding the last film camera ever to roll off the line.”

Look at the chairs behind her. You see stacks of chairs in restaurants, hotels, churches, anywhere where you never know how many people will be around. You never see it in films and I never noticed it in The Shining, BUT it’s all part of Kubrick’s attention to detail. None of that was shot in a hotel. It was all built on a sound stage. He told someone, “Get me a shitload of chairs behind Shelly.”
I think this is the most extreme expression of horror ever captured on film. Brilliant!
