Today at NAB Show

Ang Lee

Ang Lee discussed his vision for cinema and the creative opportunities for the future of film making as a part of The Future of Cinema Conference.

When you shoot, you’re just doing grocery shopping. It’s in the editing room you do the real cooking.”

The award winning director of Life of Pi, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and Broke Back Mountain also released a special screening  of his soon to be released film Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk. Billy Lynn is the first major motion picture release to have been shot in 4K, 3D at 120 frames per second, and the results were stunning.
