From Hungry Ghost Collective:
I have both film and digital cameras. The digital comes out more but I’m very much in touch with film and the process. My recent project was shot all on a 4×5 film camera. I definitely think process effects the breathing room that one might assign to something. To me film says, “fewer frames and more expense so think twice as hard before you shoot.” It’s different with digital. What’s fun about film is that one is still on a blind date of sorts. You have a pretty good idea what it’s going to look like but you just won’t know till you wait it out. This changes my experience of shooting even though the outcome could be the same. I think overall the film process has a little less anxiety because you’re on the slow train. Not like you can’t turn something around overnight with film, you can. But it’s your approach to pre-visualization.
