Here's a really good audio discussion from the 'Terrance and Phillip Show' Podcast. (no southpark relation and no fart jokes) T&P discuss the topic of how the quality level offered by trained film & video professionals is becoming unnecessary because of lower expectations of 'quality' in digital media these days. From film to Mpeg4 and from Vinyl LP's to MP3's and more what is determined as a quality product has changed considerably.
As those who are working pros, Intermediates looking to go pro or Hobbyists or Novices what do you think a 'quality' looking/sounding film or video is and what level of quality would you be willing to produce or buy? Should you make your final product high quality as possible or just get it to where it's good enough? What do you think good enough is? Do you think low quality films and video are ruining the film and video business by just being good enough?
