With an alternative name like the International Journal of Motion Imaging, this is clearly a magazine that takes itself seriously. This shines through in the quality of the writing of the articles – clearly written by seasoned experts who know exactly what they’re talking about. They are certainly right in American Cinematographer that there has been an explosion in the quality of what is around on TV nowadays, with the likes of The Wire, The Sopranos, Downton Abbey, even Doctor Who is now a celebration of excellent production. There has never been a better time to turn on the telly and get deeply engrossed in fascinating drama.
In fact, whisper it quietly, but TV is fast approaching the quality of film. There’s always so much more room to explore characters and stories in a 15-20 hour series than in an hour and a bit film, and the production vales are astonishing. The acting has never been better, and we can be particularly proud that a British creation such as Downton Abbey has found its way on to the cover of the International Journal of Motion Imaging. So, hip, hip hooray, toodle pip, milk and one sugar, god bless the queen (or king) and let’s celebrate the many successes of British television. NB
