720 vs 1080 vs 4k: What resolution choices do I need to make?

Moviemaking has been around for about 120 years now and has gone through dozens of formats and format variations. The first films shot at about 12 frames a second. As history moved along, many other formats came and went, and some were quite popular and innovative. The 16mm format, for example was popular with amateur filmmakers, while Technicolor and widescreen Cinerama and CinemaScope amazed people in the theaters. IMAX and Super 35 are today’s film choices, but other pure digital formats are becoming more and more popular. Some people are even starting to shoot movies with their phone cameras.
