This book explores the relationship between celluloid modes and digital practices in the creation and perception of cinema’s images, as well as the implications of this technological transition for our relationship with the movie screen and with the models of recording, creating, and interacting with movies that have now become available. It considers the digital media’s distinct modes of production, projection, and reception, as it reconfigures rather than replaces celluloid modes of creation and interaction. As such, it focuses on digital cinema in search of those forms of expression and perception that present a new ontology of the cinematic—that is, as they change the existential relations between the movie image and the world it presents and with which it interacts. It also discusses the debate of digital cinema’s ontology, and the interrelationship between old and new media that is revealed in cinema cultures, as well as the way digital movies depict the world and engage with the individual. Finally, the book explains how we may go about addressing the question of technological change within media archaeologies.

Keywords:   digital media, production, projection, reception, digital cinema, ontology, new media, cinema culture, digital movies, technological change
