The penultimate advocate of utilizing film as the medium to create art,
William DiPietra explains, "When people hear that I shoot film instead of
video, they look at me as if I have three heads. But there is a reason that
I shoot film. For me, the process is just as important as the end product, if
not more so. Film is much more organic. It goes through chemical processes,
just like us. And there is always an element of the unknown: it should come
out okay...but you never know."
