Because as an amateur filmmaker myself, i look up to these cinematographers and have grown up watching both film and digital. There is no saying one is better than the other. One time the Academy sensed the switch from Black and White to color and split some categories into two. I think this needs to happen, if only for a trial run.

I sign this for one reason; I think it's very important to "protect" and cherish the old fashion way of shooting a film, without CGI and green screens. Therein lies an admirable craftmanship which should be honored.

As an aspiring cinematographer myself who prefers traditional film making, I appreciate the work that goes into the aesthetics of a film, whether digitally manipulated or not. For all cinematographers, it is only fair to split them into two categories and give them the respective credit they deserve.

I think its true and they should be 2 different awards for the category.

As a filmmaker i feel Cinematography is a very important part of filmmaking which is being confused with visual effects which is overlooking great cinematographers. I personally enjoy good practical effects and on set lighting over visual effect used in films so I feel this is a step in the right direction.

While I personally think the award should be divided into "Film Only" and an "Everything Else" category, I think this petition is a step in the right direction.
