    I have a lot of interest in cinematography. In my teens and early twenties I made many movies, in Super 8, Standard 8, and 16mm.

    One of my sound movies, nearly half an hour long that I directed and photographed with a cast of four, was a popular success to large audiences at my school. In post production a musician friend and I slogged away on the soundtrack in the back room of the library for a whole week, missing all classes. The principal accosted me and publicly yelled his head off at me. But the film was a roaring success! By the way, he was a good principal, and he thought very highly of me.

    In my opinion film origination will always be the gold standard because it is a more interesting and more artistic medium. Images from an Alexa are nice enough, though :)

    I'd just prefer to use film if I could, and lately I've been doing so. The look, to my eye, is better. I'd be interested to work in the film industry, so get in touch if you'd like.

    I belong to the crowd who believe that great films are still being made, and that cinema has a good future.
