Director Reed Morano has begun a petition on Change.org (http://tinyurl.com/ntvnw97) to get TV manufacturers to get rid of motion interpolation (or at least to offer TVs with the option off by default). Interpolation is the practice of inserting extra frames into content to make it appear smoother. While motion interpolation is accepted for sporting content, filmmakers often speak against it, as it changes the way that content is seen – i.e. it is not how they intended. At the time of writing, the petition had 8,500 signatures out of 10,000 required.
