Robert Primes: Video Dailies

From American Cinematographer, Penny-Wise, Image-Foolish? by Richard Crudo, ASC

"There seems to be a disrespect on many levels of the industry for what we do as cinematographers, and that's very disturbing, considering our enormous role in the creation of a film. The trend toward using video dailies in a feature-film environment is a prominent indicator of that... By taking away any of the elements brought to a movie by its photography, you lose a tremendous amount of the movie's emotional appeal. Print dailies are the only way for directors of photography to measure whether they're being too cautious, too reckless or right on the money with their approach to the story."
