Stock Takes


Flip­ping film stock be­tween the eras — 16mm for 1984, 35mm for 1988, dig­i­tal for 1998 — was cin­e­matog­ra­pher Al­win H. Küch­ler’s brain­wave. “As soon as you said it, it was like, yeah,” rel­ishes Boyle. “In 1998, we hadn’t started us­ing dig­i­tal yet. But Jobs had, be­cause they re­leased Toy Story [in the mid-’90s]. 16mm felt like a good way to show the early days where they thought of them­selves as pi­rates, work­ing out of a garage. The ac­tors loved it. It makes ev­ery­one look younger. And 35mm felt like a good one for the mid­dle act, for the sto­ry­telling.”
