Watch the unbreakability of film grain
A film grain of unbreakables is a film made from the same image that was scanned and processed to create it.
The unbreakably large amount of detail in films is the result of an extremely detailed process that has been repeated millions of times over and is extremely difficult to recreate.
In this case, the team at Viacom are using grain to create a film that is a “new and beautiful thing”, according to director and executive producer Brian Gorman.
“It’s like being able to go back to the beginning of time and see that we made something we never knew existed,” he told BBC Sport.
“We can’t really describe it but you just see it, and you can’t explain it.”
The team has spent the last three years working to create what they call a “digital cinema”, which they believe will be the world’s first digital cinema.
“This is a cinema made from digital film,” they said.
“The cinema that will be around for years to come.
That’s our vision for what this is going to be.”
The project is being funded through a series of donations, with a $20,000 (£12,500) donation from Viacum’s own Viacoclaim film company, and $1,000 from VICELAND.
Viacom is a major force in the world of cinema and a key part of the entertainment industry, with films such as Pirates of the Caribbean and Avatar earning huge box office returns.
Gorman said he and his team had worked on film grain for many years, but that their film grain was “the first time that we had a digital version of a film”.
“This was a new, beautiful thing,” he said.
“It was something that we didn’t think we’d be able to replicate, so we’re really proud to be able do that.”
Viacomy is a company that has produced films including The Mummy, Pirates of Europe, Transformers, and Star Trek: The Motion Picture.
It has also recently launched a film archive, the Viacamatrix, which will provide the latest films and films-making technologies.
Golan said he had been working with Viacomy for a number of years, and was impressed with the progress they had made.
“I’m very proud to have been involved in the creation of this digital cinema and this new digital cinema,” he added.
“What we’re trying to achieve is to be the first digital movie that’s completely unbreakABLE, so you can only make a very small number of copies.”
That’s a big deal for me and a big challenge for all of us.
