I sometimes marvel at architecture because it seems so permanent. I am fascinated by stone and metal sculptures for the same reason. They have a permanence. Eventhough over time they will fall if not maintained, they last in their true form for millennia or longer.
But movies - they are so technology dependent. Even in 20 years the movie will not be experienced in the same format it was created. The technology will have changed so much that the references will be outdated and the full impact unable to reach in it's original form. In 100 years it would only be watchable by film enthusiasts, archivists and researchers.
So I have been wondering - why make something that won't last?
After thinking on it for a while I came to the conclusion that it is the same reason you hold the hand of someone with whom you're falling in love. The same reason you pur your arms around a friend who lost a loved one. The same reason you tell a joke.
It's because this moment has value and these are really the only moments we will actually ever know.
