Has anyone ever used a hand cranked 16mm camera with great results?
I'd love to see footage that someone has shot, especially cross processed.

That seems to be a thread concerning how to make a film looked aged.
I'm talking about the effects that Tony Scott did on Man On Fire and Domino.
He says it's mostly cross processed but the variable speed and "jitterness" came from a hand cranked camera.

I'd love to see samples of forum members that have shot in a similar fashion. I'm sure Scott has bells and whistles that are out of reach for most indie film-makers.
Thanks

Hi, I built a Hand Crank Arri M a few months back and have used it on a hanful of shoots with great results. The Arri M is great becuase its small, lightweight, its low cost, and is great for short ends with the 200 foot mags. Camera accepts 2R and 1 R film. I have attached a link to two quicktime clips and a photo of the camera. One of the clips is 7285 cross processed.

The cross process one looks pretty cool.
How do you think it would have come out with Tungsten lights?

I'm shooting a scene thattakes place in a dark warehouse with some over head lights beaming down in the background behind the actors.

Oh page 2 Herb talks about a few of his hand cranked experiments.
