I'm going to shoot a short MOS piece on an Arri SR1 because 1) that is all i have and can't afford to rent a Super 16 setup and 2) my plan is to crop in post to make the images anamorphic.

I'm wondering if anyone could give me any tips as to how to successfully "cancel" or "black out" the parts that I'm seeing through the eye piece so that I know what is 100% going to fit into the anamorphic "crop" that I do in my edit program.

Any tips and or advice would be appreciated.

Cheers,

Rod

On my Arriflex 16SR I added the 16:9 (I think what you are referring to as anamorphic) frame marks by using two pieces of Scotch Magic Tape, one on the top and one on the bottom of the fiber optic screen (the ground glass on an Arri SR). That way I could still see what was going on in the top and bottom of the frame, but I had clear reference marks of how we were going to crop the picture.

I don't know what you are referring to with the MOS though, the Arriflex 16SR is a sound sync camera, no need to shoot MOS, unless that is specifically what you are going for.
