One thing that really stands out for me among all of this (seemingly pointless argument), is that:
You can shoot any format, and if the script is good, it will integrate and help tell the story with out drawing attention to “the format”. http://fcproducer.com/2008/11/red-one-vs-film/#comment-23695BAM!!! (For all those directors out there who think otherwise and degrade story to a bit part in their play of 'Self Indulgence is my Middle Name!')
Another great resource out there is the blog, Cinemoose.com - though the writer no longer appears to be updating it since Dec 2008, it has some real gems in there. I stumbled on this epically wise: The Importance of Shooting on Film - the writer makes a good case that these days, film makers or digital cinema directors come from a features television background and not a photographic one where the old school were encouraged to really think about how to tell a story with pcitures and how it cuts etc. I won't try to badly paraphrase this great text, I just encourage all to read it!
