1. Is there a digital look as a new aesthetic value emerging?
We all ask ourselves which scientific and technical concept provides the best reproduction of a scene or an image. I prefer to ask myself how efficient this reproduction is in relation to the structure of our perception and of our senses. This question has become an important issue, because for all the steps in the creation of an image or a scene cinematography and postproduction have become intertwined and sometimes even occur simultaneously which can make it impossible to make corrections or changes retrospectively.
