Anyone shooting on super 8/16mm/32mm film? I want to buy an editor and learn how to splice yet I feel like its not worth the time spent, when I can just send the shit in and edit it from a burned DVD. Discuss

The current arguments for/against editing real film vs digital revolve around the process. Digital editing gives you unlimited abilities to make different versions and never ending changes, while film forces you to have a singular point of view and makes you carefully consider every decision. in the old school camp,  Stephen Spielberg still edits his movies using Moviola stand-up film editors. Walter Murch is an Oscar winning film editor who has moved from analog to editing on Final Cut Pro. He has a great book called "In the Blink of an Eye". Worth checking out.
