Re: Thought film was dead?

That's great news. The lab I go to still makes optical prints, but I always get my negs scanned to a CD as well.

Re: Shooting a live music performance with sound

Yeah, having a video camera with audio and video reference come in handy when syncing sound. Look for cues like drum symbols when syncing... comes in handy like a slate. You'll find a lot of shots like close ups of instruments, various shots around the stage ect... don't have to be synced right to l...

Re: Shooting a live music performance with sound

I used to do this a lot with 2 Canon 814XLS's. It worked out pretty well. You can hold lip sync for at least 10 seconds. I would add in a video camera that would make it easier to sync shots and audio. I would actually use an HD cam to mix with 2 S8 angles going for many aesthetic cuts ins.

Re: 16mm Experimental Short

Thanks everyone! It played in the Shorts Corner at Cannes in May, and will be shown in and around the train system in Madrid next month. I think I spent a total of 8 months shooting it. The whole time I was unsure if I could pull it off, but I got pretty close to the look and concept I was going for...

Re: Why negative film?

With reversal, your limited to a certain look. Not much head room... what you get is what you get. With negative, depending on a viariety of ways to expose and process your film, there is a lot you can do in post telecine to create certain looks.

Re: Editing software: any clear front-runner?

Vegas 10 is coming out on Oct 11th! http://www.sonycreativesoftware.com/vegaspro10

I like that is has a stabilization plug in that also handles rolling shutter issues.

16mm Experimental Short

I did this project while I was off the forum, so not many here have seen it. Pretty much a one take experiment, the hard part was finding out where to begin and where to end. With various conditions, I think I used one roll of each Kodak color neg in regular 16mm with my Bolex Rex4. enjoy- http://ww...

Re: Editing software: any clear front-runner?

Final Cut and Avid have just been more heavily "branded" as the standard, but maybe thats changing? Vegas is on par and even better in some areas. It does really come down to what your compfortable with, what your needs are, and maybe even your system. I've been using Vegas since 4.0, on 8.1 now... ...

Re: 100D HD Test

Yes, i'm using the condensor setup. Like I said, still getting the kinks worked out. I'm also still trying to tune up the new 100D. Going to make some white card shots for WB and more accurate colors, got a new 2 stop polorizer for the Canon 814XLS. And eventually going to try my hand at transferrin...

100D HD Test

I've upgraded my Workprinter setup (and drove Roger crazy) to do HDMI caprutes with my Sony HDR. I'm really liking it, starting to get my techniques dialed in. here's a sample of what I would call my first success in making the jump to HD... Captured full HDMI, rendered to HDV 1440x1080 http://www.v...

Re: Editing software: any clear front-runner?

I like Sony Veags a lot too. been using it for 6 years now, but it's risen to the top as one of the best NLE's. Very user friendly and very powerful tool. It has a good list of codec varieties for SD, HDV, HDMI... can edit mixed formats very well together. Not much for cheesey special effects plug-i...

Re: Fuji Velvia 50D

Totally- there is nothing like projected 16mm 100D. When it comes to S8, I compared it side by side to Velvia a few years ago. They look very much alike with a few subtle differences in color hues, and an extra stop with 100D. Now that Kodak is carting 100D, I wouldn't bother with the 150% extra cos...

Re: Vimeo or Youtube for Super8 films (in HD)

I agree with Will, Vimeo is more centered on film makers and art, where You-tube is 99% people lighting farts and the crazy double rainbow guy... although the HD looks really good, I don't know if it costs anything? I recently subscribed to Vimeo Plus. It's $60 per year with HD support of many file ...

Re: Ektachrome 100D Colors Look Great!

I was hoping and waiting for Kodak to release in it S8 for a long time. I've always liked it better than the 64T and even K40. The colors are just what i want for reversal, that rich density and tight grain. Projecting it always rules, but i like my DIY transfers of 100D so far too. http://www.vimeo...
