Looking to buy Rivas or Hollywood 16mm tape splicer

20 February 2019 - 07:48 AM

Hey all,

Im looking to buy a Rivas or a Hollywood 16mm tape splicer. I have a ton of perfed tape and this is something Id like to acquire for my workprints.

It doesnt have to be in the best comestic condition as long as it works well. Im hoping for a reasonable price tag, if at all possible. If you or anyone you know is looking to get rid of one of these machines cheap and fast, please let me know.

Thanks in advance,

Derick

Question about film print

15 February 2019 - 11:03 PM

Hey all!

Ill try to keep this question quick and simple. Im an experimental filmmaker and like to process my own film. I want to try to splice some 16mm color reversal together with some hand processed b&w neg.

To achieve a positive for the b&w in my print would I have to get a timed print made of the b&w stock and splice that to the color and then make an internegative from my finished cut?

I am not dealing with a&b rolls, this would be a single strand piece. Im fine with splice marks and such.

A second question, say I cut my camera neg to the color reversal. If I were to have this scanned, would my b&w be positive in the scan or a negative?

Im trying to keep costs down as much as possible so Id like to work with originals.

Thanks in advance!

Looking for a simple 16mm film synchronizer

14 February 2019 - 09:52 AM

Hey Everyone,

 

I'm looking for a 16mm film synchronizer, if anyone has one they would be willing to part with cheaply. I don't need anything fancy, and a 2 bank is fine. Just need something that works.

 

Let me know if anyone has one they would be willing to get rid of.

 

Best,

Derick


Weird issue with Bolex

10 February 2019 - 07:30 PM

Hey everyone,

So today I was shooting with my Rex 4 and something strange happened. As I was running down a full wind, my camera started running really slow mid wind, almost like the little engine that could.

Now before everyone says to get it serviced, I want to cancel a CLA out. I just had it serviced a month ago, so lack of lubrication shouldnt be the problem. So ideally Id like to rule that out.

Could the cold weather be the issue? It was about 30 degrees out, and once I had the camera back indoors it seemed to run smoothly. But the camera was not loaded when it was running smoothly again.

Another thing I wondered was could the problem be because maybe I mis-loaded the camera? The film did run through to the end.

Im kind of baffled because all seems to be fine now, at least until I load it up again.

Any advice or insight is very much appreciated.

Thanks in advance!
