Beowulf theatre experience

I went to see Beowulf in IMAX 3D last night. Due to projector problems, the start time was delayed by 30 minutes. While we waited, patrons were afforded the opportunity to switch to the Digital 3D version of Beowulf plus a free pass to another show of their choice. I opted to wait it out. I really w...

1014 XLS Test and Problems

I also have a Canon 1014 XLS, which I just used (tested) for the first time in many years (about six). I used Plus X film at 24FPS. Two strange things occurred; 1) the light meter did not always work. It was on again off again. But when it did work, it compared accurately to an external light meter....

Scriptbuddy.com

Has anyone used the scriptbuddy.com online site to write screenplays? If so, any opinions one way or another versus using an application like Movie Magic Screenwriter?

Too Much Meter?

IMO, it's a moot point whether the meter in question is too much for the user or not. The fact is, he already has it. So why not learn how to take advantage of its features fully? And what's wrong with seeking advice on this forum? Surely there are members of this forum who are only too happy to sha...

Any Recommended Repair Techs?

I have a 1014E. I haven't tested it yet because I have been using another camera. But I do intend to use it. If there are problems, I'd like to get it repaired and serviced. What U.S. based repair outfits offer service for this model? Does anyone have first hand experience?

Thanks

Seeking NYC or Boston Lab Recommendations

I will be shooting a good bit of Super 8 Plus X and Tri X this summer. First time in a long time. As I live equidistant from Manhattan and Boston, I was wondering if anyone can furnish recommendations (or warnings) about the labs in either vicinity?

Thanks!

CineCap Problem

I was wondering if anyone had this same problem with CineCap and how to resolve it (I'm still waiting to hear back from Alternaware but thought I'd try here in the meantime). I'm new to using the Workprinter XP but Cinecap worked perfectly the first few times I did transfers. Now, after I set up the...

Sniper or XP?

Does anyone have experience with the Basic Sniper in addition to the XP? I am going to purchase one or the other. For convenience and speed, the Sniper seems perfect but for flexibility, exposure and other adjustments, am I better off using my own separate 3CCD camera in tandems with the XP unit? An...

For work related reasons I've been cutting on Vegas, which I like, but I need to get back to FCP on my personal MAC and really honestly learn it. I'm curious, what versions of FCP are most using? I have FCP3. Is it worth upgrading?

Light Meter

I just purchased the Sekonic L-398M (Studio Deluxe II) from B&H Photo in NY for $161.00 U.S. This meter hasn't changed much in decades, but then I haven't used an external meter in decades either so I'm relearning the use of it. So far so good but I'm still awaiting results back from the lab. I expe...

USA the Movie (some of it filmed on Super 8)

While perusing one of my favorite political websites, http://www.smirkingchimp.com (a good place to go to catch up on all the latest news articles chronicaling or commenting on the latest misdeeds of the Bush Misadminstration) I caught an ad for a DVD movie titled "USA the Movie." Curious, I clicked...

Filmis4Ever wrote You're really missing out if you aren't projecting film. Transfers leave a lot to be desired You're right, assuming the film is in good condition. A cine transfer, however, when done well and seen on a good monitor or TV is a whole lot better than watching your film getting ripped ...
