New full res CITIZENS trailer: 720x450

Hi All Just to let you know that a full-res trailer of the CITIZENS project is up on the website. This is far from a final trailer for the project, but I thought you might be curious nevertheless. You need Quicktime 7 and some hefty bandwidth because its 20MB, but ultimately we will be using Flash a...

Re: Shikashika wins jury prize for "Best Film", Cambridge, UK

Excellent news and I am more than sure it is a fully deserving winner.... although wasn't half of it shot on 16mm?!!

The Cambridge festival is fast establishing itself as the place for highbrow super-8 work with Dan's film winning last year and now your film taking the cap this time round.

I´m still using my 35mm stills SLR and even with stock, developing and scan I think I am concurring less costs than buying a similar D-SLR with a close to 35mm size sensor. There are also great lenses available very cheap as people have been switchign to digital. The lens I use is a Tokin 28-70mm...

Notching for Pro8-01 (7201) 50D?

Hi everyone

Do you know how Pro-8 are notching their V2-50D stock?

I am hoping to use it with the Canon 514 XL-S which only reads 25D and 100D. I would be happy for it to default to 25D if that was the case.

I'm new to this notching issue because I previously used a Beaulieu.

Cheers
Nathan

My initial thoughts are that this looks like the ultimate super-8 stock.

Perfect amount of grain to add character but not be annoying, lots of detail and a (only slightly) retro reversal look.

Excellent choice of music and sound design to go with the imagery. I really like it, my only reservation is the fireworks at the end which don't seem to fit or add anything.
