I am going to be shooting an old TV that will have a VCR hooked up to it ...
Yes, you are going to have a problem. You need to be using a camera with preferably a 180 degree shutter opening, and filming at 29.97 or 14.985 FPS. Our Milliframe Controller will give you the required speed, plus a Phase button to move the bar to the bottom of the monitor frame. Something like an Arri S or M with one of our crystal motors would give you the 180 shutter, plus the mirror reflex shutter will enable you to see where the bar is in the frame.
Your Bolex's 135 ? degree shutter will be giving a wide shutter bar at 29.97. You will have a wide bar that flickers through the frame if filming at 24 FPS.
The instruction manual that comes with our crystal motors goes into how you can do it with a Bolex by using a strange filming rate: http://www.tobincine...om/page114.html
The present preferred method is to film from a thin flat-panel LCD monitor instead. I gather that you can film from it at any speed without shutter bar. Would it be feasible to rip the guts out of the old TV and put a new LCD monitor inside it?
