Technology has been the primary driver that pushed filmmaking to uncharted territories particularly with the emergence of Computer Generated Imagery (CGI) that inevitably led to the birth of digital films. Regardless of format, the primary role of these various visual storytelling techniques is to create believable realities that revolve around compelling storytelling. However, just like any new medium, digital films were confronted by many issues that became apparent, from perception and technical perspective, especially after the release of the Film Final Fantasy: The Spirit Within (2001) and the bankruptcy of the studio behind it. Furthermore, after the release of Life of Pi (2012) and the liquidation of Rhythm and Hues, the studio behind the film’s stunning effects, other issues regarding the industry’s politics, financial state, and the treatment of practitioners became exposed to the public. Despite the efforts to promote awareness and propose solutions, these issues persist and impose a crucial effect on the believable factor of many films.
