In an article on IndieWire, DP John Mathieson discusses if he prefers to shoot on film or digital.
The British DP, a two-time Academy Award nominee for lensing “Gladiator” and “Phantom of the Opera,” shot “Detective Pikachu” on film, a choice he told Newsweek was far superior to the CGI used by “Sonic.”
Mathieson told Newsweek "If all we’re talking about is how these two films look, our film is better than ‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ and I’m sorry, I don’t care who I upset by saying that, but I think it looks better. … There’s no reason why you can’t shoot a film like [‘Detective Pikachu’] or ‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ on film."
