Watch: James Cameron & David Fincher In More 'Side By Side' Outtakes In Advance Of Film's iTunes Release

The Playlist By Charlie Schmidlin | The Playlist August 21, 2012 at 10:46AM

For cinephiles at least, one of the most anticipated releases of the summer is the Keanu Reeves-produced documentary “Side By Side,” not only for its essential film vs. digital debate, but even more for the incredible behind-the-scenes talent lined up for interviews. Martin Scorsese, Steven Soderbergh, and Christopher Nolan all make appearances in the film, and now Tribeca Films have released the latest in their series of outtakes, this time featuring the inimitable director of “Avatar” and “Titanic.”

For cinephiles at least, one of the most anticipated releases of the summer is the Keanu Reeves-produced documentary “Side By Side,” not only for its essential film vs. digital debate, but even more for the incredible behind-the-scenes talent lined up for interviews. Martin Scorsese, Steven Soderbergh, and Christopher Nolan all make appearances in the film, and now Tribeca Films have released the latest in their series of outtakes, this time featuring the inimitable director of “Avatar” and “Titanic.”

After hearing from Wally Pfister on Nolan's stripped-down shooting style, and then Robert Rodriguez sharing an amusing anecdote on digital presentation, it seems fitting that Cameron should wrap up these clips before the film's imminent release. He's arguably been the most influential in terms of digital technology advancement and research, and that's reflected in the clip, in which he explains the researched neurological responses of babies on digital imagery and frame rates. It's unclear whether the director himself fashioned a laboratory with his considerable resources for these specific examples, but the information remains fascinating nonetheless.

These excerpts only hint at the mountains of footage just begging for a Blu-ray release, but along with an extra David Fincher interview as well, they make a fine transition into the film's actual release tomorrow on iTunes, after which the film expand into more theaters nationwide. Check out both clips below.
